Apple tells workers they have right

Apple delivered a message to employees that was striking given its reputation for secrecy, a reminder that workers may discuss wages, hours and working conditions.

The notice came as some employees have been pushing Apple to do more to ensure there are no unfair gaps in pay across the company.

In a post on an internal site, Apple said its policies do not preclude employees from "speaking freely" about working conditions, according to a copy of the message viewed by Reuters.

"We encourage any employee with concerns to raise them in the way they feel most comfortable, internally or externally," the post states.

Apple's business conduct policy already included language stating that workers were not restricted in their ability to discuss wages, hours and working conditions, which is generally protected under US law.

But employees who have spoken out in recent months have faced resistance, said former Apple program manager Janneke Parrish. -Nampa/Reuters
