'Apple Together' group organizing corporate, retail walkout on Dec. 24
Apple Park at night
The walkout is being organized by Apple Together, a group of Apple employees that formerly used the #AppleToo moniker to air grievances about workplace conditions, harassment, and sexism at Apple. The group describes itself as "Apple workers in retail corporate, and AppleCare uniting to change" the company.
It isn't clear how many workers will be participating in the walkout, but the group is asking consumers to avoid shopping in stores or online in an effort to "demand that Apple upholds it image."
Calling all Apple workers and patrons!
Tomorrow, December 24th, 2021, Apple workers are staging a walkout/callout to demand better working conditions.

Along with the strike, the Apple Together movement has also recently published a website that offers both resources and a Discord channel for employees wanting to organize and discuss their frustrations.
"Apple prides itself on its commitment to diversity, equity, and an environment where everyone can do their best work," the website reads. "But Apple has fallen short of this goal for so many of our current and former teammates, so we made space to share those stories with #AppleToo."
The group is also still accepting first-hand accounts of workplace conditions through its #AppleToo stories account on Medium.
Apple Together was first formed as the #AppleToo movement back in August. In just four days, the group collected around 500 stories of harassment and other workplace issues.
The U.S. National Labor Relations Board is reportedly investigating at least two complaints filed by Apple employees. The NLRB is also investigating the firing of Apple employees who spoke out about workplace conditions.
