The bill continues to be expensive for Activision Blizzard as it is close to seeing the formation of its third union as a result of labor problems that it did not want to address for years. Although the organization of the workers is imminent, the company will not let this happen without trying to put their foot in them and it was recently revealed that it is doing the same in the face of Proletariat’s intentions.

Activision disguises itself as Proletariat executives to hinder the formation of their union
Through a statement on the official site of Proletariat, a support study in World of Warcraft, a group that called itself the “proletariat leadership” (Activision Blizzard and its managers in operation obviously) announced the rejection of the representation of Communications Workers of America (CWA) for the vote that will lead to the formation of the union and instead told the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that they prefer an anonymous vote accompanied by “full information and various points of view” to workers so workers can “process it and understand the impact.”
“Their actions this week have been right out of the union-busting playbook used by Activision and so many others. Management held a town hall last week which disappointed many of our workers.” 3/

In this regard and through the CWA, the Proletariat workers accused Activision Blizzard of trying to sabotage the union organization, first by preventing them from voting themselves even though the majority had already signed their union cards; second, holding an assembly that only sought to confuse the workers, the same one that took place the day the formation of the ZeniMax union was announced.
On the other hand, they accused Activision Blizzard of not agreeing to a neutral position, something that has become the norm before the workers’ organization and more so when the company that tries to buy everything, Microsoft, has shown that position before the labor efforts.
In this sense, the employees of Proletariat pointed out that the attitude of Activision Blizzard and the “Proletariat Leadership” is not pro-workers as indicated in their statement and warned that at this time the company is applying all possible anti-union actions to avoid the organization and formation of the Proletariat Workers Alliance, a union that will soon become a reality.
