Starbucks Corp. employees in Mesa, Arizona, voted to unionize their store, expanding a fledgling labor foothold that began in New York state in December.

The National Labor Relations Board counted ballots Friday during a virtual gathering, with the union winning 25 to 3. If the agency certifies the results, Starbucks would be legally required to negotiate with the union, Workers United, over working conditions at the Mesa restaurant.
