Video Game and Tech Workers Unionization Campaign

Blue's News has the latest on the on the Communications Workers of America attempts to unionize employees of video game and tech companies.

The new project charts a path away from organizing video game workers along the Hollywood craft union model. SAG-AFTRA has represented video game voice actors for years, and called a strike in 2017 over pay and royalty structures. But CWA largely follows the industrial union model, which organizes entire companies at once rather than splitting workers who perform different jobs into specialized unions.
