Тестировщики Raven окончательно оформили профсоюз — первый среди AAA-студий в США

Разговоры о том, что тестировщики Raven Software собираются оформить профсоюз, шли уже несколько месяцев. Накануне ситуация перевалила за Рубикон: прошло формальное голосование, по результатам которого Альянс работников игровой индустрии признали на федеральном уровне. Это первый официальный профсоюз среди крупных игровых студий в США.

Как пишут СМИ, голосующие представляли интересы 28 сотрудников отдела по контролю качества Raven. В итоге 19 голосов высказались за создание профсоюза, три — против и ещё два голоса оспорили. За процессом следил представитель Национального управления по трудовым отношениям США. Он заявил, что оспоренных голосов недостаточно, чтобы повлиять на результат, поэтому голосование завершилось в пользу создания профсоюза.

Теперь члены Альянса работников игровой индустрии могут приступать к переговорам с Activision Blizzard об условиях первого контракта — профсоюз наверняка будет требовать улучшений по части зарплат и других трудовых вопросов.

Логотип Альянса работников игровой индустрии (Game Workers Alliance). Он создан по следам скандалов в Raven, а с организацией помогали Профсоюз работников связи Америки (Communication Workers of America; официально признан) и A Better ABK (ещё одна самопровозглашённая трудовая организация внутри Activision Blizzard; официально не признана).

Стороны отреагировали на результаты по-разному:

Activision Blizzard без устали работала над тем, чтобы помешать нам создать профсоюз. Но мы настаивали на своём. Теперь, когда мы победили в голосовании, наш долг — защищать фундаментальные ценности, на которых стоит наш профсоюз.

Члены Альянса работников игровой индустрии в совместном заявлении

Мы уважаем всех наших сотрудников и считаем, что у них должно быть право выбирать, поддерживают ли они создание профсоюза. Мы также считаем, что такое важное решение, которое повлияет на всю Raven Software со штатом около 350 человек, не должно определяться 19 сотрудниками Raven.

Представитель Activision Blizzard в комментарии для Kotaku

Как утверждают некоторые работники, Activision Blizzard угрожала тем, кто хотел обсуждать трудовые условия, зарплаты и текущие расследования о культуре внутри компании, — угрозы прикрыли «чрезмерно пространными правилами в отношении социальных сетей». Незадолго до голосования Национальное управление по трудовым отношениям заявило, что считает эти обвинения обоснованными и начинает проверку.

Даже если оставить за скобками эти обвинения (они ведь ещё не доказаны в суде), Activision Blizzard явно не хотела видеть в своём составе официальный профсоюз: например, в январе компания отказалась добровольно признавать Альянс работников игровой индустрии.
