Apple (AAPL) workers accuse management of 'surface bargaining' done in bad faith

Unionizing Apple Store employees have called the company out for regressive bargaining behavior.


Last year, Apple Store workers in Towson, Maryland, broke new ground when they announced they were forming a union in pursuit of better rights and conditions. The group has spent months negotiating with the company about the new terms, but discussions seem to have taken an unfortunate turn. ACORE has released a new statement, criticizing Apple for poor bargaining habits and negotiating in bad faith.

ACORE shared its new statement in a thread of tweets earlier today. After months of negotiations, ACORE claims that Apple sent the group a counteroffer that essentially exemplified bad faith bargaining.

With the statement from ACORE, we’ll be watching closely to see if there is any response from Apple. In other union news, employees at SEGA of America won a vote this week to form the gaming industry’s largest union.
