Activision Blizzard Inc. Chief Executive Officer Bobby Kotick said the US’s biggest independent video-game publisher will start negotiating with the Communications Workers of America over a collective bargaining agreement for employees at its subsidiary Raven Software. 

Last month, a majority of video game testers at Raven Software employees voted to form a union -- a first for a US-listed game company. Workers came together in response to job cuts at the company last December.
