Apple Store in Baltimore became the third to launch a group launch

According to The Washington Post, employees at an Apple store in Towson, Maryland, sent a letter to CEO Tim Cook today informing him of their intention to unite. AppleCore for short, is the third Apple retailer to report that it is in the process of merging. In May, one Apple store in Atlanta will hold one party election, and another at New York City’s Grand Central Terminal collecting signatures. Earlier this year, The Washington Post reported that a number of other Apple stores were quietly planning a group ad, but had not yet made their plans public.

“As our store approaches its 20th year we think about the history of this company and how we have always been different; because we have always thought differently. Today we ask you to do the same and to negotiate not to use your resources to participate in anti-corporate campaigns to change us, “AppleCore members wrote in the letter. Mendelson, which team organizers saw as a possible attempt to nip team activities in the bud.

The Towson team claims to have the support of up to 65 qualified staff, giving them the shortest of the store staff. The workplace only needs signatures from 30 percent of its employees to hold an NLRB party election, but most workers must support unity in order for a campaign to succeed. As with other Apple stores that have gone public with their plans to merge, Towson employees point to a lack of flexibility in planning, concerns around covid security and payment processing. Reduced wages seem to be a major issue, as Apple has announced huge gains on the pandemic, even as the economy has a big departure to a major recession.

In a statement to The Post, an Apple spokesman responded to the letter. “We are fortunate to have members of the retail team and we have a deep value in everything they bring to Apple. We are pleased to offer a very strong compensation and benefits for full-time and part-time employees, including health care, tuition, new parental leave, paid family leave, annual stock offers and much more. other benefits. ”

Towson Store plans to file a paper later this month with the National Service Relations Board. The staff at a specific store, located at Towson Mall, are co-ordinating with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, a team representing the air force and the security industry.
