Activision Blizzard Hit With Unfair Labor Practice Lawsuit

Activision Blizzard Hit With Unfair Labor Practice Lawsuit The Washington Post reports (may require registration or subscription) that Activision Blizzard employees and labor union the Communications Workers of America (CWA) have filed an unfair labor practice suit against the company. The suit alleges worker intimidation and union busting: "The union claims that Activision Blizzard is using coercive tactics to stop employees from unionizing." The story says Activision Blizzard, the CWA, and assorted lawyers have not yet replied to requests for comments on this news. Here's more on the suit:
In a statement shared with The Washington Post, CWA organizing director Tom Smith said: “Management could have responded with humility and a willingness to take necessary steps to address the horrid conditions some [Activision Blizzard] workers have faced. Instead Activision Blizzard’s response to righteous worker activity was surveillance, intimidation and hiring notorious union busters.”

The employees and the CWA union filed this most recent lawsuit in California with the National Labor Relations Board, alleging that Activision Blizzard acted coercively to stop unionization using tactics such as surveilling employees, interrogating them, making threats and promising benefits.

...There is nowhere near enough popcorn in all of Redenbacher's trove of popcorn to sit through the volume of screw-ups coming out of Acti-Blizz.

I'm even avoiding even looking at the Diablo redos. It's been like watching a company run right off the cliff from constant bad decisions...
