-- The labor group working to organize Apple Inc. employees at an Atlanta store is withdrawing its request for an election, Bloomberg reported.

-- The Communication Workers of America said it withdrew its request "because Apple's repeated violations of the National Labor Relations Act have made a free and fair election impossible," the report said, citing an emailed statement. The labor group also cited Covid-19 infections among the store's workers in connection to concerns about the ability of eligible employees to vote and the safety of in-person voting.

-- Apple said it was "fortunate to have incredible retail team members and we deeply value everything they bring to Apple" when asked about the move, Bloomberg reported. The company also cited compensation and benefits offerings for full-time and part-time employees.
