Employees of the US technology group Apple in the US state of Maryland have voted to join a union. More than 100 Apple retail workers voted overwhelmingly to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers on Saturday, the union wrote on its website.
Local Apple employees in Towson, near Baltimore, have “the support of a solid majority of our colleagues,” they wrote in a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook. Joining the union is not directed against Apple’s management. When asked by Reuters, an Apple spokesman declined to comment at this time.
