Apple Store employees protest in Paris over pay, work conditions

Workers at Apple stores in France began a nationwide strike over pay and working conditions on Friday (September 22) in a protest designed to coincide with the launch of the iPhone 15.

About 30 staff were picketing outside the company's store in Opera in central Paris, one of three in the French capital, a few meters away from a line of about 40 customers waiting in the rain to enter the shop.

Apple unions including CGT, Unsa, CFDT and Cidre-CFTC, which also plan to strike on Saturday (September 23), have asked for a 7% wage increase to compensate for inflation, and an end to a months-long hiring freeze.

Management did not want to offer more than a 4.5% hike, union officials said.
