Ubisoft went from being the largest video game company in Europe to being a real disaster and one of the examples of everything that is wrong in the industry. The truth is that the company is going downhill and there are no signs of improvement, much less because of the tense relationship that exists between the workers and the board headed by Yves Guillemot, its general director. The situation has reached such a degree that the specter of the strike is getting closer and this weekend it could explode.
Union organizations in France call for a strike at Ubisoft
According to information from Liberation (via The Gamer), the union organizations STJV and Solidaires Informatique called on the Ubisoft workers in France to strike because the conflict with the company cannot find a solution, it has escalated to worrying levels and The directive continues without providing a solution to the workers’ requests. The straw that broke the camel’s back, according to the organizations, was the company’s position in blaming the employees for the current situation, something that did not go down well with the labor base that was quick to question the actions of the leaders during the last years.
