A group of more than 200 Google and Alphabet workers have announced a formation of a union. With the help of Communication Workers of America Union’s Campaign to Organize Digital Employees (CODE-CWA), the Alphabet Workers Union seeks to be open to both employees and contractors.
Out of 227 workers who have signed on to support the union have all committed to set aside 1% of the yearly compensation to go toward union dues and they mostly belong from the offices of the San Francisco Bay Area and one in Cambridge.
“You have an industry of workers, the new generation of workers and the industry, especially tech and games, has been growing exponentially with young people, Some of them make a lot of money and are working at companies that do really bad things. I think they’re at a position socially where they’re like enough is enough.” said CODE-CWA union organizer Wes McEnany about why more tech companies organize unions.
