The Communication Workers of America have announced a new campaign that will focus on organizing the tech and video game industry. It’s called the Campaign to Organize Digital Employees and it launched at the beginning of the year. Check out the campaign’s website here.
Also this month, a majority of newsroom staff at Sports Illustrated signed union cards declaring their intention to organize with the CWA.
At Google, around 2,300 contracted cafeteria workers have voted to unionize with a local chapter of Unite HERE. This came around the same time that a fifth former employee filed a complaint that she was fired for her attempts to organize within the company.
