US Labor Board says Google spied on its workers

American National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) said on Wednesday that Google disturbed US labor laws by spying on its employees. According to the indictments, some workers were organizing employee protests and then Google fired two of them, namely Laurence Berland and Kathryn Spiers.

Berland stated that "Google’s hiring of IRI is an unambiguous declaration that management will no longer tolerate worker organizing. Management and their union-busting cronies wanted to send that message, and the NLRB is now sending their own message: worker organizing is protected by law."

Spiers added that the NLRB might order Google to reinstate her, but it cannot reverse the harm done to her credibility.
