The unrest within the Apple Store ranks started in February, with rumors of some workers filing the paperwork needed to form a union. At a location in New York, progress seems to be moving fast.

The ‘Fruit Stand Workers United’ group has gathered employee signatures at the Grand Central Apple Store as organizers hand out cards to union members. The group will become a partner of Workers United, the same organization that helped Starbucks employees in the US.

It will be the first Apple Store to be unionized if it is successful. There are reports of three other stores trying to do the same.

Apple said in a statement that it values ​​its retail team members and that the company offers strong benefits and compensation for both part-time and full-time employees, including annual stock grants, tuition reimbursement, health care, parental leave and more.
