There might be a bit of a longer line outside of the Opera Apple Store in France for the iPhone 5 launch tomorrow. Apparently the union that represents almost 25% of Apple Store employees in France, known as the SUD union, is calling on employees to strike in front of the aforementioned Apple Store location. The union workers are demanding a thirteenth month of pay, vouchers for meals and water fountains inside the stores.

“We’re inviting all the employees who consider insufficient the advances made as part of annual labor negotiations and think Apple isn’t showing enough of an interest in its French employees to join us tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. in front of the Opera Apple Store,” Thomas Bordage, head of the union, said. Thankfully, for Apple, only one union is calling for a strike, Reuters said. Employees in the other twelve Apple Store locations in the country will not partake in the festivities.

The strike aside, take a look at just how beautiful the Opera location is (pictured above).
