Workers at a Second Apple Store Just Voted to Unionize

'Apple workers in Oklahoma City have voted to form the second-ever labor union at one of the company's US stores,' reports CNN, 'in the latest sign that organizing efforts are gaining traction inside and outside the tech and retail industries.'

In a preliminary tally by the National Labor Relations Board on Friday evening, 56 workers, or 64% of those casting ballots at the Penn Square Mall Apple store, voted to be represented the Communication Workers of America, and 32 voted against it. Turnout was strong, with 88 of a potential 95 workers participating in the vote.

The union victory comes four months after Apple store workers in Towson, Maryland, made history by voting to form Apple's first US unionized location.... Workers at both locations have said they're looking to unionize in an effort to have more of a say in how their stores are run. Some also said they were inspired by union pushes this year at Amazon and Starbucks.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment after the late night vote count Friday....

Between January and July of this year there were 826 union elections, up 45% from the number held in the same period of 2021, according to a CNN analysis of data from the NLRB. And the 70% success rate by unions in those votes is far better than the 42% success rate in the first seven months of 2021.
