Dear Scarlett, organizer of #AppleToo, leaves Apple on Friday
#AppleToo organizer Dear Scarlett is leaving Apple on Friday.
Dear Scarlett, an Apple Engineer who has helped organize pay equity investigations and anti-harassment / discrimination campaigns in the company, will be leaving the company and requesting the withdrawal of a complaint she has filed with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), according to a report by Bloomberg.
Scarlett has come to an agreement with the Cupertino company over the NLRB complaint and has already requested a withdrawal. She did not disclose details of the settlement, but her lawyer Alek Felstiner said Bloomberg: “The case was settled amicably and the withdrawal request is pending before the board of directors. We hope that the crucial organizational work at Apple will continue. “
Friday is my last day at Apple.
I am taking some time to decide where I would like to go next, and I will announce when I make that decision.

The senior software engineer tried to organize an internal investigation into employee compensation, publicized the workers’ complaints and helped draft an open letter to CEO Tim Cook criticizing the working conditions.
Scarlett was one of two Apple employees who filed complaints against the company in September, alleging unfair labor practices, including a claim that management “engaged in coercive and repressive activity which allowed abuse and harassment “of workers who organize themselves.
It’s unclear what will happen to the #AppleToo movement with Scarlett’s departure. Its website, which posts workplace stories of Apple employees and workers, has not had an update in the past 10 days.
