Employees at Apple’s Atlanta stores have filed for party membership

On Wednesday, workers at an Apple Store in Atlanta filed a lawsuit against a party, hoping to become the first program by retailers in the tech giants to do so. Apple employees have filed a complaint with the Atlanta Public Relations Commission office, which confirmed to CNN Business that the registry will be reviewed to ensure that at least 30% of employees have discarded membership cards, which is at least legally for creating a group.

More than 70% of 100-plus eligible employees at the store at the Cumberland Mall Atlanta have signed up for membership licenses, according to the Communications Workers of America (CWA) team, which represents employees Apple. The Atlanta store effort is a new indication that large technology companies, which avoid unification especially among their employees, are facing a growing number of peer pressure among their part-time employees. At least Apple’s other retailer is said to be looking to unify. Meanwhile, several Amazon stores have also tried to merge, including one in New York City to launch the company’s first American team earlier this month.

“Apple is a very good place to work, but we know that the company can best live up to their ideas and therefore we are excited to join with our partners to bring Apple to the negotiating table and let this place is even better. to work, ”Derrick Bowles, an Apple Genius Bar employee who is part of the planning effort, said in a statement shared by CWA.

CWA did not elaborate on the team’s proposed requirements, but said in a statement that “Apple retailers are offering significant sales and repair services to many customers, yet they have refused to pay.” , the cost of transfer adjustments or balance stock options. ”

Apple owns more than 270 U.S. stores, and thousands of U.S. retailers. The starting salary for retail workers is $ 20 per hour, or about $ 40,000 a year for full-time employees. The average hourly wage for retailers in electronics and hardware stores nationwide stands at about $ 25.50 per hour, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s all the staff in the sector, not the starting salary.

In response to a request for comment, Apple did not directly address the European Union’s Atlanta election registration but also stated in a previous comment that “the pleasure of offering very strong compensation and benefits for full-time and part-time employees, including health care, compensation schooling, new parental leave, paid family vacation, annual stock offers and many more. ”

The Atlanta store registration comes a day after reports of a similar establishment attempt at an Apple Store in New York City. Workers at a store in the Grand Central Terminal have begun collecting signatures to file a petition, the first step in a party formation effort, a person familiar with the matter told CNN Business.
