Apple violated federal law by holding mandatory anti-union meetings and by interrogating and coercing employees at an Atlanta retail location, according to a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruling shared by Bloomberg.


Back in May, workers at the Cumberland Mall retail site were planning to hold a union election in June, with the Communication Workers of America (CWA) organizing the store. The CWA withdrew its request to hold an election, accusing Apple of “repeated violations” that made a “free and fair election impossible.”

In a statement shared by Bloombergthe CWA said today that “Apple executives think the rules don’t apply to them,” equating Apple’s tactics with “psychological warfare.”

The NLRB said it would file a complaint if Apple doesn’t settle, and it would be the second such complaint. The NLRB filed a complaint against Apple in September after Apple used the same anti-union tactics at a New York store. The NLRB is not in a position to assess penalties, but may request policy changes and informational remedies.
