Apple Store Employees in Maryland Vote to Enforce First Strike in Protest of Working Conditions

Employees at the first Apple Store to unionize in Maryland have further authorized a first strike against the company’s retail operations. 

A date for the strike is yet to be set. The vote came into being after “over a year of negotiations with Apple management that yielded unsatisfactory outcomes.”

According to the statement, the workers are trying to change “unpredictable” scheduling practices and wages that synchronize with the local cost of living.

“We deeply value our team members and we’re proud to provide them with industry leading compensation and exceptional benefits,” Apple said in a statement, “As always, we will engage with the union representing our team in Towson respectfully and in good faith.”

Workers at the store in the Baltimore suburbs voted by a nearly 2-to-1 margin to unionize in June 2022, joining mounting pressure across US retail, service and tech industries to provide and organize better workplace protections.
