US legislator expects the government to intervene in the purchase of activision
From the purchase of Activision Blizzard , much has been talked about the properties of the company and the exclusivity of some titles. However, a topic that does not have to forget, is the position of the workers. Although there are some employees who are happy with the acquisition of Microsoft, there are others who simply are not sure what this will mean for their future.
Some employees have alternated their concerns in social networks, noting that leaving Bobby Kick as CEO of Activision Blizzard, at least until the purchase ends next year, is not the decision that was expected by Phil Spencer . On the other hand, more are concerned that all attempts to make their union are discarded once Microsoft executives come on stage. This was what an employee commented on this:
We have not had any communication from any leadership since the strike began, and now we ask ourselves if that is because they have new people with whom they negotiate or because they have tagged us as ‘problem of another person now’ or if we are just too small to be imported at this point.
Along with this, Jerrold Nadler, head of the Judicial Committee of the House of Representatives of the United States, has indicated that the Government of this country must intervene in the purchase of Blizzard Activision, with the aim of ensuring that the labor culture that is He has released during the last year, manages to be corrected . This was what was commented about:
Activision Blizzard, who is already a giant of the games, has a pattern of harassment to workers to evade responsibility for unbridled inappropriate sexual behavior. I hope that this agreement will be examined closely to ensure that it does not harm US workers or competition.
Hopefully these topics are treated by Microsoft, and The struggle of employees is not simply forgotten . In related topics, Phil Spencer talks about the unionization of Activision Blizzard. Similarly, the Xbox chief ensures that the Call of Duty games will continue to arrive at the PlayStation.
I know that the properties of Activision Blizzard are important, but you do not have to forget the problems that the workers of the company have faced. It would be easy to forget them under the promise that Microsoft will change things, but it does not have to be the case, and I hope that the fight for unionization can be completed.
