Apple's retail stores seem a happy place. Unless you believe in unionizing the workers who toil there, in which case Apple may not be “liking” your Facebook page.
In response to at least one serious effort to create a union for Apple store workers, the Cupertino head office sent out notices this week and asked store managers to take part in a training course today, Tuesday.
A CNET story lays out the key goal of the training: “This course is intended to provide managers with a practical understanding of how unions affect the workplace, how and why employees organize, and the legal do's and don'ts of dealing with unions,” the training description reads. “This is a mandatory class for all new managers, and is required biannually for all managers.”
