Activision Blizzard Workers Strike to Fight for Their Union and for Gender Equity

25 Jul, 2022

Nearly 500 Activision Blizzard King (ABK) workers in New York, Texas, California, and Minnesota walked off the job on July 21st to demand that Activision Blizzard sign a neutrality agreement to prevent union-busting as the workers organize, as well as to protest the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and to demand gender equity.

The demands for the Walkout to End Gender Inequity included:

  • A labor neutrality agreement similar to the one recently signed by Microsoft

  • Option for all ABK workers to work remotely.

  • Cost of living adjustments

  • Assurance that the workers’ health insurance provider will continue to cover transgender and reproductive healthcare

  • Relocation allowances

  • Regular meetings between Management and the workers’ Committee Against Sex and Gender Discrimination

CWA Local 1118 members joined the ABK workers’ on the picket line in Albany, NY to stand in solidarity with the workers who recently filed for an NLRB election to join Local 1118.
