Apple Workers at Maryland Store Vote to Unionize

A first in US

Employees at an Apple store in Towson, Maryland voted Saturday to join a union, a significant achievement for organized labor. The Towson store is the first unionized Apple store in the U.S.

The vote is a defeat for Apple, which has opposed unionization efforts, and could energize workers at the company’s other retail locations to move forward with organizing.

The tally was 65 votes in favor and 33 opposed. Approximately 110 employees were eligible to vote to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. Voting started on Wednesday and ran through Saturday evening.
