In a recent meeting with Ubisoft employees, the CEO Yves Guillemot took a step back and apologised for the email delivered to company employees the day after the publication of the most recent financial results. In the communication, Guillemot invited employees to work harder and to lead the company towards a brighter future.
The email was severely attacked, especially by the trade unions, who read between the lines a wanting to shift the blame for the crisis onto all workers that Ubisoft is facing, without admissions of guilt from the management. This is why the union symbol Solidaires Informatique has called a strike four-hour event which should take place at the end of the month.
As reported by my city, which cites sources present at the meeting between Yves Guillemot and the workers, the CEO’s apology would not have been enough to appease spirits. Also, HR Manager Anika Grant would rejected many of the unions’ demandsincluding implementing the short work week and raising wages to adjust for inflation.
The situation therefore appears to be evolving, therefore we will not fail to report any updates.
