Activision Staff Seeking Union Election Face Company Opposition

  • Workers plan to file with National Labor Relations Board
  • Scandal-hit Activision has been under scrutiny for harassment

Activision Blizzard Inc. on Tuesday refused to recognize its first union, setting the stage for an escalation of a budding labor dispute.    

The gaming giant said it won’t voluntarily recognize the union that a group of 34 quality assurance testers at Raven Software, the Activision-owned studio that works on Call of Duty games, said last week that it had voted to form with the Communications Workers of America. The group said it will consequently file a petition with the National Labor Relations Board.
