MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Employees of the US tech giant Apple demanding better working conditions, say they are planning to stage a walkout on Friday, the Christmas Eve.
"Tomorrow, 24 December 2021, Apple workers are staging a walkout/callout to demand better working conditions," Apple Together, a group of Apple employees, said in a statement on Twitter on Thursday.
According to the statement, employees require the company to provide paid sick leave, appropriate mental health care, and a respectful work environment.
Employees of another tech giant Google urged consumers not to by any Apple products on Christmas Eve and to donate to the strike fund.
Dissatisfied with the working conditions, racial and gender discrimination in the company, Apple employees have created a website where they post reports of certain violations, and publish open letters to Apple management with demands to improve working conditions.
