Apple Accuses U.S. of ‘Interrupting Union Formation’
Bloomberg News and other foreign media reported that the U.S. Telecommunications Workers’ Union (CWA) accused Apple of violating federal labor laws on the 18th.
CWA reportedly accused the company of unfair labor practices at the Apple Store in New York’s World Trade Center, where employees are pushing for union formation, to the U.S. Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
CWA claimed Apple violated federal labor laws around the 3rd, interrogating employees of the store about “a guaranteed collective action” and forcing them to participate in anti-union speeches, and restricting the posting of union leaflets.
In this regard, Apple reiterated its previous response that the company places great importance on the contribution of retail employees.
Apple said in a statement, “We are willing to provide strong compensation and benefits to regular and part-time employees, including health care, tuition repayment, parental leave, paid family leave, and annual stock subsidies.”
Apple Store employees have recently joined hands with national unions to set up unions.
An Apple Store employee in Maryland has been working with the International Association of Mechanical and Aerospace Workers (IAM) to form a union for about a year, and Atlanta will vote on whether to join the CWA on the 2nd of next month. joker land
