Workers with recent felony convictions are barred from construction work on Apple’s “spaceship” campus in Cupertino, Calif.

Apple’s policy bans people from working on the project if they have been convicted of a felony within the past seven years. Workers with charges pending against them are considered on a case-by-case basis.

So far, less than five people have been fired from the Apple construction project because of their criminal records.

The ban has received criticism from construction union workers from Iron Workers Local Union 377 who spoke out against the policy, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Iron Workers Local Union 377 has asked Apple CEO Tim Cook to undo the ban and may pursue legal action against the company.
