Nearly two-thirds of the employees at the Apple store in Towson, Maryland who organized as the Coalition of Organized Retail Employees (CORE), voted to join a union last week. The store is the first of Apple's roughly 270 U.S. outlets to do so.
The employees joined the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM). David Sullivan, the union's eastern territory vice president, said they "look forward to bargaining with Apple and obtaining a strong first contract that makes positive changes for Apple workers and the customers they are proud to serve."
A source tells Reuters that Apple intents to participate in this process in "good faith". However, this follows a complaint from union officers in Georgia alleging the company intimidated employees resulting in the cancellation of a vote to unionize at that location.
