Starbucks Corp. on Thursday said it isn’t planning to send interim Chief Executive Officer Howard Schultz to testify on alleged labor-law violations before a US Senate committee.

Instead, Starbucks offered to send Chief Communications and Public Affairs Officer AJ Jones, who already met with Senator Bernie Sanders’s staff last month, along with May Jensen, vice president for partner and labor relations, and Zabrina Jenkins, acting executive vice president and general counsel, according to a letter posted to its website.
