Activision Blizzard accused of committing labor violations to stop employees from talking about labor violations

With the help of a major union, Activision Blizzard employees have filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board alleging that the game development and publishing giant has intimidated, surveilled, and interrogated workers to discourage them from discussing labor conditions, such as those raised by the discrimination lawsuit filed against Activision Blizzard in July.

The employees, who are working under the “A Better ABK” banner (referring to Activision Blizzard King), and the Communication Workers of America allege that, in the last six months, Activision Blizzard has:

  • “Threatened” and “told” employees they cannot talk about “wages, hours, and working conditions,” or investigations about them. (The investigation that led to the July lawsuit, for example.)
  • “Maintained an overly broad social media policy”
  • “Enforced the social media policy against employees who have engaged in protected concerted activity”
  • “Threatened or disciplined employees on account of protected concerted activity”
  • “Engaged in surveillance of employees engaged in protected concerted activity and engaged in interrogation of employees about protected concerted activity.”
