GLASGOW APPLE WORKERS MAKE HISTORY AS FIRST IN UK TO SECURE UNION RECOGNITION

This is another compelling new chapter in the trade union story that’s being written across the world in Apple, says GMB Union

Apple retail workers in Glasgow have today [Wednesday 2 November] made history by becoming the first store to win trade union recognition.

Workers will celebrate their success with a rally and photo call outside the Buchanan Street store this evening at 19.00 hours, having secured a clear majority of two-thirds support for recognition following a statutory ACAS ballot.

John Slaven, GMB Organiser, said:

“This is an absolutely historic moment and testament to the hard work of the activists and workers in at the Buchanan Street store – it’s another compelling new chapter in the trade union story that’s being written across the world in Apple.

“The workforce has spoken in a loud and clear voice to achieve recognition, making the case that they are pro-worker and not anti-employer, and that trade unionism should be a normal and welcome feature of any workplace in any industry.”
