Apple Inc workers in Maryland voted on Saturday to join a union, becoming the first retail employees of the tech giant to unionize in the United States.
More than 100 workers in Towson near Baltimore “have overwhelmingly voted to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers”.
Unionization efforts are gaining momentum at some large U.S. corporations, including Amazon and Starbucks.
Apple workers in Atlanta who were seeking to unionize withdrew their request last month, claiming intimidation.
Current and former Apple workers last year began criticizing the company’s working conditions online, using the hashtag #AppleToo.
