Blizzard Albany QA Accuses Activision Of Union Busting Again

According to QA workers at Blizzard Albany, Activision is back to union-busting. They’ve claimed Activision has hired law firm Reed Smith again, the same company used to unsuccessfully squash Raven QA’s unionisation – despite numerous rounds of anti-union propaganda.

Blizzard Albany, formerly Vicarious Visions, is currently working on Diablo 4 and trying to form a union, just like Raven’s QA department did. As spotted by Kotaku, the Albany Game Workers Alliance released a statement that reads, “Instead of following Microsoft’s lead and committing to a labor neutrality agreement, Activision has made the clear and conscious decision to deny us our basic labor rights while once again spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a union-busting firm.”
