An Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) Store strike is coming to Towson, Maryland as members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Coalition of Organized Retail Employees (IAM CORE) voted in favor of the strike.

This strike comes after the union employees have negotiated with Apple for over a year. The IAM CORE members decided on the strike due to the “unsatisfactory outcomes” of these negotiations.

Here’s what the IAM CORE Negotiating Committee said about the Apple Store strike:

“The passage of the strike sanction vote highlights IAM CORE’s unwavering commitment to advocating for the rights and well-being of workers in the face of challenges. As discussions with Apple management continue, we remain committed to securing tangible improvements that benefit all employees.”

Timing of the Apple Store Strike

It’s still not been decided when this Apple Store strike will take place. What is worth noting is that the Towson, Maryland location was the first Apple Store to unionize. Other stores have attempted to do so, but with less success.

This has resulted in conflict between Apple and some of its retail employees. That includes allegations that the tech giant has taken part in union-busting tactics to keep its workers from unionizing.

AAPL stock is up 1.7% as of Monday morning.
