” To me, this appears clearly vindictive for the reality that I was speaking up about abuses that have actually taken place at my employer, pay equity and, generally, concerning our office conditions,” she stated.
Apple claimed on Friday it does not discuss certain worker matters.
Apple has actually recently experienced other examples of worker agitation. Last month, 2 Apple employees informed Reuters they had submitted fees versus the business with the National Work Relations Board.
