St. Louis Apple Store workers halt union efforts amid threats

Apple Store employees in St. Louis are moving toward unionization, but this was halted over concerns of “increased hostility.”

Apple employees chose the IAM, or International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, as their representative in the direction of a union bid.

However, the IAM claimed that the store required its employees to attend a public meeting and threatened retaliation if they continued with their plan. It is not said whether the store in question is Apple West County or Apple Saint Louis Galleria.

Bloomberg reported that the 82-strong workforce has chosen to withdraw from the union process. The IAM said it was due to increased hostility and anti-union practices, but then said their unionization efforts are not over.

The organization goes on to say that they will ensure that “all labor laws are followed” and that Apple employees are given “the dignity and respect they deserve.”

Currently, two Apple Stores are unionized: the Apple Store in Maryland and the other in Oklahoma.
