Laurent Degousee, secretary of the Solidaires Unitaires Democratiques (SUD) union, stands before the Paris Opera house as the iPhone 5 goes on sale in France's capitol. He was trying to encourage new membership, to get Apple to improve working conditions and raise employee pay, and to mark a strike of 40 Apple employees. The strike didn't seem to slow Apple sales.
Representatives and memberes of the Solidaires Unitaires Democratiques (SUD) union were at the iPhone 5 launch in Paris to try to win allies for the cause. This is a box of leaflets explaining a strike at the store that didn't disrupt iPhone sales.
