NLRB: Apple Illegally Interfered With Union Organizing in Atlanta
Posted On: Dec 07, 2022
Dec. 7, 2022 | ORGANIZING | In April, an Apple Store in Atlanta became the first of the company’s American retail locations to file for a union election. Yet about a month later, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) withdrew its request for an election. The labor union alleged that Apple was using illegal union-busting tactics to influence voting, like interrogating workers and requiring them to attend daily mandatory anti-union meetings. Now, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has found merit in the CWA’s complaint that these anti-union activities were illegal. “Apple executives think the rules don’t apply to them. Holding an illegal forced captive audience meeting is not only union-busting but an example of psychological warfare,” said Tom Smith, CWA Organizing Director, in a statement. “We commend the NLRB for recognizing captive audience meetings for exactly what they are: a direct violation of labor rights.” Tech Crunch
