Substantially reiterating what was previously reported, Phil Spencer assured that Microsoft will recognize any trade union organization decided by the workers within Activision Blizzardwith particular reference to the one in progress within Raven Software, voted by a majority of employees.
As previously reported, the Raven Software’s QA team recently voted to create a workers union, which is the first such situation within a large development team.
It is a kind of union organization within the team, which is supposed to protect the employee interestsdesigned to counter the difficult situation that had arisen within Raven, also following a series of layoffs in sequence.
As reported by Kotaku, Phil Spencer reported that “We absolutely support the rights of workers to organize and form unions”, which makes the organization automatically recognized by Microsoft, in the event that the acquisition of Activision Blizzard is to be successfully concluded. by the company.
Not that there are actually other possibilities, given that this organization, once established, should be recognized by law, but it is nonetheless positive that Spencer has specifically expressed himself in favor of this practice. “Once the agreement is concluded, we will absolutely support any workers’ organization within the company “.
It’s essentially the same stance that Microsoft had previously expressed, further confirmed now that Raven’s vote will lead to the formation of the first internal worker organization in a development team, despite the reluctance of Activision Blizzard’s management.
