Apple, the world's largest smartphone company, has found guilty of engaging in illegal anti-union tactics

According to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), Apple violated federal law by holding mandatory anti-union meetings

The Board has evidence that Apple used anti-union tactics to try to stop unionization efforts, including interrogating and coercing employees.

Apple has long been suspected of engaging in anti-union tactics, especially at its Atlanta, Georgia, location.

In May, Apple Cumberland Mall retail workers accused the company of countering an ongoing union drive.

In the same month, the workers dropped the union vote request, saying that Apple conducted a systematic, sophisticated campaign to intimidate them and interfere with their right to form a union.

In October, Apple received a complaint from the NLRB over accusations of union-busting at a New York City store.
