Apple VP of people and retail dissuades employees from joining a union


Apple vice president of people and retail Deirdre O’Brien is explicitly dissuading employees from joining a union in an internal video leaked to The Verge.

This message comes amid union drives at three of Apple’s retail stores — one in New York, one in Maryland, and one in Georgia.

The latter two have set dates to hold elections, which they agreed to with Apple. Workers at the Cumberland Mall Apple store will vote on whether to unionize starting June 2, and employees at Apple’s Towson Town Center store in Maryland do the same starting June 15.
