Employees at an American store in Apple voted to unionize. This is the first time in Apple’s history that employees’ union is going to be formed in an Apple Store. After the union is formed, the employees will be able to talk directly with the company on matters related to salary, working hours and employees.

The company has always been against the union. According to the federal agency that conducted the election, 65 of the 110 employees of the Maryland store voted in favor and 33 against it, while 12 employees did not vote.

There have already been attempts to form a union
A group of employees, AppleCORE (Coalition of Organized Retail Employees), campaigned for the union, and the voting was done. It is the third Apple Store to run a union drive this year, but the first to be successful in voting for the union. Other Apple stores in Atlanta and New York have also moved to unionize. However, employees in Atlanta have pushed the vote forward, accusing the company of working against the union.

After winning, AppleCORE tweeted, “We won our union vote! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard and sported! Now we celebrate… we’ll be together like this tomorrow too.”

Union can be formed in two ways
Unions are not as common in the US as in many European countries, but the law still provides protection. There are two ways to form a union. The company can recognize the union on its own, or 30% of the employees must be signed, only then the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) can conduct elections for the union.

After this election, Apple refused to say anything on it.
