Developers World Of Warcraft Dragonflight will create a third alliance Activision Blizzard
- Dec 28, 2022
Activision Blizzard, the world’s largest video game company, has recently acquired Spellbreak developers Proletariat and has now announced that they are planning to unionize, making it the third Activision Blizzard studio to do so. The Proletariat Workers Alliance is petitioning Activision Blizzard to voluntarily recognize their union and has filed a unionization vote with the National Labor Relations Board. This move will make Proletariat the first union at Activision Blizzard to include all non-management workers.
The Proletariat Workers Alliance has been formed in order to gain better representation for their workers and to ensure that their rights are protected.
The unionization of the Proletariat Workers Alliance is a big step for Activision Blizzard, as it would be the third studio under the company to do so. The first two were Raven Software and Blizzard Albany, which unionized earlier this year. However, both unions only included QA testers rather than the entire developer team. The Proletariat Workers Alliance, on the other hand, is looking to unionize the entire developer team and has a supermajority among staff eligible to vote for unionization.
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) will likely grant the Proletariat Workers Alliance their vote, and the union could become a powerful player in the industry. With the backing of the CWA, the union could provide better working conditions for employees and ensure their rights are respected. They are also hoping to ensure their rights are protected and to have their voice heard when it comes to decisions made by the company.
Since Proletariat was acquired by Activision Blizzard earlier this year, the team has been hard at work on the game. Unionization could ensure that the developers are treated fairly and given adequate resources to make sure the game is the best it can be.
The consolidation of the proletariat into trade unions could have a major impact on the future of the Activision Blizzard franchise. It could lead to better working conditions and wages for employees, as well as a stronger sense of camaraderie and solidarity within the company. It will also likely provide more transparency and accountability between the company and its developers.
This move could have a significant impact on the video game industry and could set a precedent for other developers to follow.
