On Tuesday, CWA announced the launch of the Campaign to Organize Digital Employees (CODE-CWA), a new initiative to support workers' organizing efforts in the technology and game industries. CODE-CWA will provide resources for workers who are joining together to demand change and bring union representation to their workplaces.
"Companies in the technology and game industries have gotten away with avoiding accountability for far too long," said CWA President Chris Shelton. "Workers in these industries are exposing the reality behind the rhetoric. This initiative will help tech and game workers reach the next level in their efforts to exercise their right to join together and demand change."
As employees at major North American tech and game companies have grown increasingly active and outspoken about workplace issues, many have expressed interest in joining a union to build power for lasting change. Through CODE-CWA, these workers will have the support of CWA members and organizers across the U.S. and Canada. Visit www.code-cwa.org for more information and check out the L.A. Times story on the launch here.
