A Better ABK? Workers Alliance Begins Activision Union Push (VL569)

2 Views
Published
It's Activision Blizzard update time again, but this time neither US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) nor the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) take center stage. Instead it's the ABK Workers Alliance (ABetterABK) who is making news, as the proto union seeks to become a bit more "union" than "proto".

The will of the employees *must* be observed, but determining that will is not a question to be answered on Twitter...in Virtual Legality.
