Apple workers using Android phones to avoid snooping from bosses

Apple Inc’s workers who are working hourly have opted to use rival Android phones to prevent their bosses from snooping around them. And the move is said to give a major boost to the employees who are intending to unionize their jobs with the support from major national unions.

On the condition of anonymity, an employee reported to Cybersecurity Insiders that they have used Google OS loaded phones to avoid falling prey to the espionage campaign launched by the iPhone giant on its employees.

From the past two years, Apple workers are demanding higher wages, sick pay and some other benefits on par with other retail franchises such as Amazon, Starbucks and such.

And to keep their demands and negotiations as a secret, they have used Android OS loaded smart phones to avoid any interference from their bosses.

Also, the employees working for the private company are intending to form a union by this year’s end and the procedure seems to have started- as per some reliable sources from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

News is out that Apple has taken a note of the situation and is planning to make it mandatory for employees to use Apple devices across its 500 retail locations, out of which over 270 are from US.

The tech giant argues it will allow no government to snoop on the users of its devices. But contrarily it seems to practice otherwise, with its own employees…isn’t it?
