Blizzard Albany Union

The votes are in and tallied and Blizzard Albany’s QA team is officially unionized. The team’s votes are officially counted at 14-0 for the unionization. A total of 18 members were eligible to vote.

This is the second time one of Blizzard’s QA teams has unionized. The first being Raven Software. Similar to Raven Software, Blizzard Albany had to fight the whole way to get to the voting process. In fact, Activision Blizzard tried twice to stop the vote claiming that it is unfair to not involve the entire organization in the vote. The good news is that the National Labor Relations Board shot ABK’s request to review the process down, allowing Blizzard Albany to move forward.

All-in-all, that’s good news for the employees. Although, the shareholders might think differently.

Note: Activision Blizzard is still under investigation by the state of California for serious harassment charges. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about such actions within his company – and performed some himself – and shielded the perpetrators from consequences.
