Are Apple Store Managers Nationwide Getting Trained for “Union Awareness” Right Now This AM? Yes, Per CNET

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

What’s this – Apple’s is doing “Union Awareness” training at Apple Stores all over the country this Tuesday morning, November 8, 2011?

Yes. Josh Lowensohn has the story.

Well, that’s news to me. Thanks, CNET!

And who’s the prime mover of this movement? It’s San Francisco resident Cory Moll, that’s who. (I don’t know why he doesn’t get more attention around town…)

Now if I were in charge of fighting unionization at Apple, I’d start handing out free bunny-ear iPhone cases to all workers. You know, as a way to win them over.

In the meantime, feel free to send the unionizers a message, why not?
