Last December, Quality Control Workers in Raven Software, Activision Blizzard Study responsible for Call of Duty: War zone , a strike began as a response to the layoffs that were carried out in their moment. After weeks of struggle, last Friday, January 21, 2022, it was announced that this organization has finally formed the first great union of video game workers in the United States. This is so the strike has come to an end.
Through a communiqué published in the official account of A Better ABK on Twitter, it has been announced that Raven Software workers’ strike has come to an end, and employees now only expect the union to be recognized by Activision Blizzard . This was what was commented about:
Waiting for the recognition of our union, the Raven QA strike is over. The unused strike funds will be stored for future organizational / strike efforts.
We will publish or retune any GPU update here. We appreciate all the community support during the strike!
The waiting for recognition by Activision Blizzard may well be positive or negative, but this organization has mentioned that We act in good faith, and we ordered good faith . At the moment there is still no official response from the company, but they are already evaluating this situation.
Recall that at the beginning of this strike, a collection of funds was carried out to support workers during this period, where $375 thousand dollars came together. According to the statement, the remaining money will be saved and, if necessary, it will be used in future strikes . On related topics, you can learn more about the creation of this union here.
