Apple corporate and retail workers are holding a walkout on Christmas Eve to demand better working conditions and have issued a list of demands — but it isn’t clear how many staffers are participating.
The labor walkout, called for on Thursday and executed on Friday, urges consumers not to shop in stores or online. It calls for Apple to meet a number of demands, including hazard pay, benefits for part-time workers, and protections from “abusive customers.”
We, the Apple workers need more from our Employer.

Amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the walkout also calls for N95 masks for all, sanitizer stations, and customer shopping by appointment only.
