Workers at Apple’s Penn Square retailer in Oklahoma City have voted to unionize with the Communications Workers of America, with 56 yeses, and 32 nos. According to the National Labor Relations Board, which oversaw the election, all common full-time and part-time workers on the retailer had been eligible to vote, 95 in whole.

The election was solely the second one carried out for a US Apple retailer. In June, workers in Maryland voted to unionize in affiliation with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. Another election was scheduled to occur in Atlanta, however the CWA known as it off, claiming that the corporate had made a good election “impossible” by intimidating workers.

Apple has confronted a number of complaints about anti-union ways, together with in Oklahoma — earlier this month, the CWA filed costs towards the corporate with the NLRB. According to the union, Apple interrogated and surveilled workers on the Penn Square retailer, held captive viewers conferences (even through the busy iPhone 14 Plus launch day, in accordance to a report from Public Radio Tulsa), and instructed that they wouldn’t obtain the identical advantages as non-unionized shops in the event that they voted to set up. The latter level has been backed up by a report from Bloomberg that stated Apple instructed workers on the unionized retailer in Maryland that they’d have to discount for advantages being given to workers at its different shops.
