Apple employees have made a set back over the announcement from the companies CEO Tim Cook calling back the employees for work from September.

Severe setback

Apple has been facing severe setbacks currently with its employees protesting against reopening during September. In his report, Tim in his message made it clear that the employees might need to come to work for 3 days weekly. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from the beginning of autumn.

The employees ib a letter made it clear as,”Without the inclusivity that flexibility brings, many of us feel we have to choose between either a combination of our families, our wellbeing, and being empowered to do our best work, or being a part of Apple,” 

Felt unheard

“Over the last year we often felt not just unheard, but at times actively ignored,” the letter said. “Messages like, ‘We know many of you are eager to reconnect in person with your colleagues back in the office,’ with no messaging acknowledging that there are directly contradictory feelings amongst us feels dismissive and invalidating… It feels like there is a disconnect between how the executive team thinks about remote / location-flexible work and the lived experiences of many of Apple’s employees,”

This matter is quite relatable to the announcement from Google a few weeks earlier where the giant asked its employees to work again but proposed a much relaxed approach over the matter concerning the employees. While other similar firms like Facebook has said it believes remote work is “the future” In May 2020, Twitter told certain staff that they can work from home forever.
