Whispers Of Unions At Apple Stores

Y Combinator Brings On Alumni To Be "Part Time Partners"

According to a Reuters report an employee at a San Francisco Apple store, Cory Moll, is working on forming an <a HREF="http://crunchgear.com/tag/Apple retail employees' union, thereby giving the geniuses a few bargaining rights.

"There's definitely no call to action yet. Right now what I hope to gain is to get people to start talking about it and get comfortable with it," he said.

Moll created a fairly simple website and, most interestingly, hasn’t had much traction with retail employees except a few odd emails. Why? I can only posit, but there is always the chance that Apple retail employees are under the misguided impression that they will eventually be booted up to corporate, an actual belief told to me by a former New York Apple store worker.

With support for unions waning generally in the U.S. it’s brave of Moll to stand up to the Pinkertons, even if they are wearing skinny jeans and handsome, monochromatic t-shirts.
