Apple won’t challenge the results of a unionization vote by workers at its Towson, Maryland store

Apple won’t challenge the results of a vote by workers at its Towson, Maryland, store to join a labor union and intends to participate in the bargaining process in good faith, a person familiar with the company’s plans told Reuters.

In a statement, David Sullivan, the union’s eastern territory vice president, said the members “look forward to bargaining with Apple and obtaining a strong first contract that makes positive changes for Apple workers and the customers they are proud to serve.”

The Towson store is the first to vote to unionize in the U.S., but likely won’t be the last. Workers at a handful of the tech giant’s American shops have applied in recent weeks for union recognition.
