But the workers, who were not directly employed by Slack, will now receive three months of pay and an opportunity for full time employment after they raised concerns with Slack’s leadership.
On Friday, March 6, the five workers were told by contracting agency Premier Talent Partners that their contracts to work as baristas at Slack’s San Francisco office would be terminated March 27.
Slack’s office has been closed as of March 6 due to fears of the spread of the coronavirus, which as of Thursday had infected 1,323 people in the United States.
The workers also offered guaranteed wages until the launch of a new Slack program, which would offer all of the baristas full time employment through a vendor.
The program doesn’t have a firm launch date yet, but all baristas were offered a slot.
