United States President Joe Biden came on Friday under criticism from Starbucks Corporation after meeting with 39 national labor leaders without the presence of those companies' representatives.

Starbucks Global Communications and Public Affairs Senior Vice-President A.J. Jones described the decision as "deeply concerning" and urged Counselor to the President Steve Riccheti to organize a meeting between Biden and the leaders of the companies at the White House.

Earlier this week, on Thursday, Biden met with 39 national labor leaders, including Amazon.com Inc.'s Christian Smalls and Starbucks's Laura Garza. The day before, the president spoke about the significance of the unions and the newly-created White House Task Force on Worker Organization.
