Apple Inc.’s unionized retail store in Maryland is filing a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board after it was excluded from some benefits, opening up a new front in the labor movement’s struggle with the world’s most valuable company. 

In October, Apple announced a suite of perks for retail and corporate employees in the US, including new medical benefits, prepaying for a portion of tuition for outside education, and free access to a premium Coursera Inc. subscription.
