Organizing at the Towson store has been done by a group of employees that called themselves AppleCORE (an acronym for Coalition of Organized Retail Employees). The workers have said they want to expand their rights, specifically asking for a say when it came to pay, hours, and safety. AppleCORE is associated with a larger, established union, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.
Currently, there aren’t any other union elections scheduled at US Apple retail stores. However, workers at Apple’s Grand Central store in New York are in the process of collecting the signatures needed to petition for a vote, in association with the Communications Workers of America union. There are also efforts to organize an Apple store in Louisville, Kentucky.
