Game Workers United, an employee-driven advocacy group, has affiliated with the Communications Workers of America, a labor union, and the two have initiated an industry-wide union organizing campaign in the video game and technology spaces. Named CODE: Campaign to Organize Digital Employ-ees, the effort merges the substantial financial and “boots on the ground” re-sources of the CWA with the GWU’s keen appreciation for the issues faced by the 220,000 employees in this industry. The campaign will focus on issues such as “crunch” or long hours for weeks or months to meet launch deadlines; cyclical layoffs; harassment; misogyny; gender-based pay discrimination; val-ues and ethical issues, such as working with Immigration and Customs En-forcement (ICE); climate change; AI ethics; and pay, severance, and bene-fits. This program will discuss the CWA’s likely organizing strategies, ways to proactively address employee workplace issues and how to lawfully address union organizing in your business.
