Apple Employees Call On Colleagues To Publicly Share Their Bad Experience
Apple’s employees, both current and former have called on their colleagues to publicly share discrimination, harassment, and retaliation stories. They experienced while working at the company.
Their call to action went up on Monday when the collective started a Twitter account called Apple Workers.
The company has evaded public scrutiny,” for too long, the group says on its website. “When we press for accountability. And redress the persistent injustices we witness or experience in our workplace. We are faced with a pattern of isolation, degradation, and gaslighting.”
Workers protesting, say that they’ve exhausted all internal avenues for a remedy from the company. And this is why they’re going public with their complaints.
“We’ve talked with our leadership. Gone to the team and escalated through Business Conduct. But nothing has changed,” they say. “It’s time to Think Different.”
According to The Verge, about 15 individuals were involved in organizing the effort. Earlier today, they shared the news on a 200-person Discord server for Apple employees and contractors. We’ve reached out to Apple for comment.
Their action comes as Apple faces questions over its handling of sexism in the workplace. In August, the company put Ashley Gjøvik, a senior engineering program manager, on paid administrative leave.
In a series of tweets, Gjøvik shared several interactions with the company’s employee relations team. One of those details is an episode. Which a manager referred to her “tone” in presentations and said, “I didn’t hear you going up an octave at the end of your statements.” Apple is currently investigating Gjøvik’s allegations.
“There is much more information about my story and my concerns about Apple work conditions that I have not made public yet,”. Gjøvik says on the website she created to chronicle her experience at the company. “I only resorted to this because everything I tried internally has failed.”
