Apple's newly unionized store has reached out to Tim Cook, asking the company to provide information on benefits offered to non-unionized employees.

In a letter to Tim Cook spotted by The Verge, the negotiating committee writes that they are disappointed to learn that the company is withholding new health and education benefits being offered to employees who are not unionized.

The letter also accuses Apple of spreading misinformation by saying that workers would need to bargain for those benefits to be included in their contract.

Additionally, it claims that Apple has not provided any details about the new benefits, which prevents the committee from including them in upcoming contract negotiations.

The letter finishes by asking Apple to "refrain from delivering misinformation regarding why Towson employees will not be offered the benefits at this time."

In June, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) certified the union election. It came to be known as the Coalition of Organized Retail Employees (CORE) and is partnered with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

Apple claimed that it would not challenge the vote and that it would plan to bargain with workers at the store "in good faith."
