Apple retail workers at the company's Towson Center store in Maryland will hold a union election on June 15 after filing a petition with the National Labor Relations Board earlier this month.
The group, known as AppleCORE, or Coalition of Organized Retail Employees, revealed their intention to unionize in a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook earlier this month. The workers told the Washington Post that they want to have more input on decisions about their pay, hours and coronavirus safety measures at the store.
"To be clear, the decision to form a union is about us as workers gaining access to rights that we do not currently have," the letter states. "We are respectfully asking that Apple follow the same neutrality requirements as laid out by the Supplier Code of Conduct under the section "Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining" so that as employees we can obtain our rights to information and collective bargaining that the law affords us through unionization."
