Canceled: Unions Launch New Effort to Organize Game Companies --- Are you Ready?
For the past twenty-four months organized labor has been targeting the game development industry. The most recent push called CODE – Campaign to Organize Digital Employees was recently announced to some media fanfare. CODE arises out of the rapidly growing effort to unionize game workers by Game Workers Unite (GWU) and one of the largest unions in the US, the Communication Workers of America (CWA). Sheppard Mullin has put together a team of experienced labor attorneys to study CODE and the effort to organize a unique group of employees not typically associated with organized labor. Come hear the last update on CODE, thoughts on what you should expect related to its effort to organize your game development employees and contractors and tips concerning how you can respond.
