Monday, 04. January 2021 12:50

Over 200 Google employees said on Monday they decided to form a union. This is the first time in history that a labor union had been created at a major technology company.

The Alphabet Workers Union is also indulging support from the Communications Workers of America (CWA). Dylan Baker, a Google software engineer stated: "This is historic, the first union at a major tech company by and for all tech workers. We will elect representatives, we will make decisions democratically, we will pay dues, and we will hire skilled organizers to ensure all workers at Google know they can work with us if they actually want to see their company reflect their values."

"Alphabet remains to punish those that attempt to speak up, and also maintain employees from talking on delicate and also openly crucial subjects, like antitrust and also syndicate power," the statement says. The Union still has to get support from enough of Alphabet’s 120,000 workers.
