Last week, CWA filed an unfair labor practice charge against TCGPlayer, an online marketplace for trading card games and subsidiary of eBay, for violating federal labor law. Within the past two weeks, multiple TCGPlayer supervisors and managers, including CEO Chedy Hampson, have patrolled the floor of the authentication center, taking note of employees who have worn any clothes or insignia identifying them as supporters of TCGunion-CWA. “It’s clear the actions of TCGPlayer management are inconsistent with their proclamation of being among the best workplaces in New York State. Instead of respecting TCG workers’ protected right to choose to join a union or not, management has chosen to directly violate their labor rights,” said CWA Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens. “If TCGPlayer wants to live up to its core value of ‘community for all,’ they must respect their workers’ rights and allow a free and fair election to happen without interference.”
