In addition to a big win in Waban, Massachusetts, four more Starbucks stores had their union election ballot counts on Thursday, overseen by the National Labor Relations Board.

Each store needed at least 50% of their vote plus one to win.

The 16th Street Wall and Tremont location in Denver, Colorado, won their election 4-1.

The Holly and Leetsdale store in Denver followed up with a 9-1 win.

Elsewhere in the state, the S. Nevada and Brookside store in Colorado Springs brought home a unanimous 13-0 victory.

There was a slight hiccup at the Academy and Flintridge location, also in Colorado Springs. Workers had a 10-10 tie vote, but with two challenged ballots, an official outcome is still to be determined. That means pro-union workers still have a chance to come away with a win once those challenges are reviewed.

There are now five unionized Starbucks in Colorado with Thursday's wins.

Meanwhile, the Oyster Point store in Newport News, Virginia, voted 11-7 to unionize. Their win made nine union victories in the state so far.

There are now more than 80 Starbucks unions across the country.
