It takes four steps to form a union, according to the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations AFL-CIO. While this piece is based on federal labor laws in the U.

The following steps happen both individually and all at once. The process may sound complex and overwhelming, so in an effort to lay out unionization in a practical way, we will explain all four.

Co-workers get to know each other to determine their shared interest. In practice, this means getting to know co-workers as peers — to find out what others would change about their workplace, and also, what they love about working there.

Many organizers start by probing for information on common workplace topics. Is there a problem with gender discrimination or pay discrepancies? Are employees able to share salary information with each other?

Are people working overtime without overtime pay? Is work remote for now, but may not always be that way? Is management actively seeking out and supporting workers from marginalized backgrounds?

Even without a formalized union, this sort of transparency has given workers the power to enact change. Organizers call these sorts of interactions one-on-one conversations: a way to build relationships, identify interests and problems, and move ahead toward unionization. Once some employees understand how co-workers feel about the workplace and the industry, grouping people together based on shared interests becomes a natural step forward.

Union organizers can help make sure people are meeting regularly. Workplace mapping and charting is one tool used to quickly gauge union support among the team, and to make sure efforts are reaching all workers. A union is made up of the workers; for it to work, people have to be invested in each other and in creating a better, more equitable workplace.

No one else but the workers can do that for a union. A solid base is key in creating a successful union, organizers told Polygon. Moving forward too soon can make things more challenging. Once a shared interest in making positive changes at the company has been established, some workers will reach out to a professional union organizer for support.

A group like CODE-CWA is already working to bring together video game industry workers, and may help with logistics and strategizing without tipping off bosses.

These organizations have contact information on their websites to connect workers with people who are interested in seeking help. Some video game industry workers are interested in organizing without external support — creating an independent union. This process is designed to assess interest in unionization at workplaces.

You can read more about independent organizing, like that of the Amazon Labor Union , later in this zine. The newly formed group establishes goals and a viewpoint, builds support for the union among colleagues, and gives the group structure.

This step of the process is like building a house — maybe a commune of sorts — in The Sims 4. The important part at this stage is ensuring that everyone who will live in the house can provide input and feel heard: This is not a scenario where one Sim ends up in a pool without a ladder.

In fact, the construction of the house is designed specifically to prevent that. Practically, it helps to have a subset of workers that can represent the entire union effort — both to management and with peers.

This group will ideally reflect the diversity of jobs, experiences, backgrounds, and cultures of the whole unit so that all its members are represented, not a specific or dominant group within the collective.

Are we being safe? Are we creating a space that is welcoming to women of color, nonbinary folks, trans people? The union itself will nominate and choose these folks, too.

Having some sort of union leadership at this point is crucial as a union moves toward recognition — which is when an employer agrees to start bargaining with workers on a contract. Meet often, whether online or in person, to keep up momentum between workers.

What is union recognition? A union is a union when it says it is. But some are working toward a legally binding union contract, and in the U. An employer may choose to voluntarily recognize a union; otherwise, the NLRB will hold a vote to make sure the workplace does want union representation.

The card check is the official count of people interested in being represented by a union. Cards will be distributed to employees digitally or physically , and the workers will choose whether to sign them as an affirmation of support for the union. The purpose of the vote, held by the NLRB, is to legally force the company to recognize the union.

These steps can be delayed, and that has happened before in the video game industry. The election was scheduled only after that process played out. Of course, workplaces can choose to voluntarily recognize a union after a card check, too, which is what happened with Beast Breaker developer Vodeo Games in When Vodeo workers told their boss they wanted to form a union, Vodeo Games founder Asher Vollmer voluntarily recognized the union and skipped the NLRB vote.

However, in September , Vodeo Games disbanded its studio due to lack of funding; bargaining was not completed before the studio folded. Vodeo is the exception rather than the norm.

Most of the time, the process will continue with an NLRB vote. Once the election is scheduled, workers vote, secretly, with ballots provided by the NLRB. Over a designated time period, the NLRB will collect these ballots until a count is held to determine the outcome of the election.

If a majority of workers — half plus one — votes in favor of unionization, the union will be certified barring any appeals. At that point, the chosen bargaining committee, a special group designated for the task, can move into negotiating with management for its first contract. For instance, management may want to challenge some votes as invalid.

These concerns have to be filed within a week of a vote count. Once the company recognizes the union, voluntarily or by regulation, and the union is certified, then bargaining will begin. Think of the negotiation process as the fifth step.

Negotiations can be long and difficult, but this is where the rubber meets the road when it comes to employees having a collective say in workplace conditions, and making sure those benefits and conditions are explicitly written into a union contract.

This happens over weeks or months, with scheduled meetings agreed upon by both parties. One side will propose a contract, and the other will respond with counters or suggestions for tweaks; think of it like tracked changes in a Google Doc on actual contract language.

This happens repeatedly until management and the committee agree on a complete contract. What will these groups negotiate over? It depends on the workplace. Every contract is different, because different workplaces have different needs.

But typically, negotiations cover topics such as pay including salary tiers, annual increases, overtime compensation, and pay equity ; benefits like health insurance and paid time off ; and rules governing workplace misconduct and disciplinary actions.

The process of negotiating a contract typically has one universal goal across unions and workplaces: to improve the lives of workers by fighting for a fair share. Some independent unions operate without a legal contract, solely using the collective power of the workforce to make changes within the workplace.

Other independent unions do work toward legal contracts, and those operate just like typical unions. The group has had a number of successes , like when data center workers won back a bonus that had been taken away, or when the union took collective action to stop the company from deadnaming a trans employee on his Google badge.

It comes down to showing up for each other, talking about our problems, and learning how to act in concert. Google, for its part, has more than , employees, according to recent data. That means that in order for a union there to be formally recognized, thousands of employees would need to express support for unionization.

Working without a contract, the Alphabet Workers Union hopes to begin creating change now, long before a recognized union is viable. The union was founded by labor activist and former Amazon worker Chris Smalls , and had no traditional union help.

All of that helped in the places where traditional unions are particularly beneficial; they have so many resources, both financial and legal, that can be harder to obtain for smaller unions.

I had seen the power that they could have over the workplace. We submitted [the Alberta Labour Board application] on April That Friday, we had executives from Keywords Studios flying to Edmonton.

But at that point, it was already too little, too late, because most of the individuals were already signed onto the union. What really resonated a lot with our members leading up to the vote was how their actions were already improving the workplace. We were supposed to be back in the office in mid-May, which was a huge deal for a lot of us.

Unionizing, for me, is about having a group of highly aligned folks who all agree on fundamental principles of racial, gender, and other types of justice, regardless of the specific form they take, and obviously tailored to the games industry.

We can lend our collective power to other struggles. Our industry is steeped in not just overwork and crunch and mismanaged timelines and other exploitations, like that of QA workers, but connecting those fundamental labor issues to the larger picture of the racial and gender struggle.

You do your yearly evaluation and you hear how great you did that year. Maybe you get promoted. I was really annoyed. I had to negotiate myself a pay raise for the first time in nine years. The whole point of the union is to give you a framework to organize.

You can talk to your co-workers, and with a union, you can leverage that power. The moment that we started the ball rolling on unionization was really when it looked like it was becoming even more unsustainable to live off our wages which is typically not much more than minimum wage here.

After working at home during the pandemic for around two years, we were informed that it was going to be mandatory to work in the office. While the client studio we work for does have more flexibility about hybrid work and the impact it would have on them, we were informed that there would be no further support given to offset the new costs of getting to work.

I was also concerned that with no options to work from home, and a very reasonable studio policy that you should not come to work if you have COVID symptoms, meant that if you got sick, with COVID or otherwise, you could be missing out on weeks of pay. We have no sick leave and I typically try to save my vacation days for periods of complete studio shutdowns where we may or may not be paid.

Doing the back of the napkin math on the average cost of living here, those extra costs could have easily put workers in a position where they would have to choose between gas to go to work or groceries. Although that was the catalyst to get us to start talking about unionization, once we started talking about our current issues I definitely realized some of the issues I was feeling were definitely felt across the team.

We were able to share information and realized we were being paid much under what other workers doing similar jobs at different studios in the same city, and that many of us had taken on more responsibilities without a pay raise or title change to reflect that. Eventually, once we officially submitted to unionize, they rescinded the return to office requirement, which I think really showed us the power of a union in getting our employers to listen to our concerns.

After layoffs, I ended up connecting with another teammate, and we started a Discord. We saw the company careening towards a financial wall — no one was paying attention or giving it a second thought.

We started organizing on Discord. We got a band of, like, five to six people that ended up growing to We were trying to get some worker power, so we could lead this in a safer direction. We were predicting another layoff, and we wanted to prepare for it this time.

We built some infrastructure. We set up job boards and resume review channels. We were trying to set up housing assistance and provide resources during a really tough time.

After another round of layoffs, we started passing out the Discord invite further. We want to be an alternative to management. We want to help provide the things that management is failing [to provide]. All it takes is a chat among co-workers — to get to know each other and their feelings in the workplace, including how it can be improved.

No one else can do that work for a union. Yes, unionizing, and talking about unionizing, is legally protected in the U. by the National Labor Relations Act, but the Communications Workers of America suggests keeping these conversations away from work areas — including company messaging systems and devices and physical offices.

The fear of upsetting management, facing union busting, or risking job security is justified. Organizing workers eventually have to talk about the union with their employer , but this will be when the union is ready to go public.

or, nowadays, hop on a Zoom call. Being able to empathize and give [your co-workers] an opportunity for catharsis, independent of union organizing, is just healthy, and a lot of people need that, especially these days.

I think if we worked together and went to the boss, we could probably get him to change his mind. That tends to get people on board. Legal votes, a lot of stuff. More support means a more powerful union, and part of the process is outreach — talking to more and more people about how a union could benefit them.

There are typically difficult conversations and conflict within groups. Unions can make huge progress while quietly doing the work of organizing. But of course, as more workers get involved in the conversation, management will be more likely to hear the rumblings of change.

But workers at Keywords Studios wanted a union representative that was smaller and more local, which is why they went with the United Food and Commercial Workers Canada. For independent unions, the process works the same — but without that external legal support built in.

However, union experts recommend building much more support than that, especially if management may object. A supermajority of workers supporting a union effort strengthens its position when going public.

At this point, organizing workers are usually ready to approach management to request recognition or kick off a National Labor Relations Board vote. This happens in an official capacity, and probably with assistance from a larger union — if employees are working with one at all.

An independent union would likely hire legal assistance to help with this step. Union groups like CODE-CWA or UFCW Canada help facilitate this process and provide support, but workers as a whole communicate together through this single voice, working toward their first contract.

Once an organizing campaign has gone public, there are ways for fans to help, and ways for developers to communicate appropriate methods of assistance to those fans. People really, passionately love video games, and a lot of folks want to support the people making them.

We did that in the Voltage writer strike, and it was a successful tactic at Riot during the walkout, but it is not safe or tactical to do outreach to fans before you have an extremely solid organizing foundation within your studio and you are nearing going public.

Having support from folks is huge. Workers from Activision Blizzard, Riot Games, Vodeo Games, Ubisoft, and others have Twitter accounts to help spread the word straight from union representatives. Support on social media, and messages tagging official company channels, can be one effective way to get fans involved without stepping over any lines.

The general consensus among union experts is that fans should follow the lead of workers, which is why organizers recommend communicating to fans through a single source — a dedicated social media account.

This is simply a recognition that, for workers across the industry, the status quo has failed. This pamphlet is neither an all-encompassing instruction manual, nor legal guidance, nor a demand that every studio unionize. What we have assembled is purely information, and for many, inspiration for a potentially better way.

This is, for those interested, an overdue first step in the marathon. And those who are indeed interested should seek direct guidance from labor relations professionals, like lawyers and union organizations noted here and elsewhere.

There is risk involved in organizing — there are legal protections against retaliation, but employees often face resistance all the same.

Management can apply implicit and explicit pressure, deploying anti-union talking points and going so far as to reprimand or even fire people.

The process of forming a union, winning recognition, and then negotiating a collective bargaining agreement usually takes multiple years. It can be scary. But there are people doing this work, people who are leading the way.

Hablamos tanto de los usuarios en general, como de esas personas que, además de disfrutar el videojuego, ¡quieren terminarlo marcando los más altos puntajes y si es posible, algún récord! Por otro lado, cada gamer tiene sus tipos de juegos preferidos; algunos como World of Warcraft llevan años siendo el hobby de millones de personas, y son extremadamente adictivos.

Otros juegos tienen una vida más corta, no obstante muchos de ellos se han convertido en un culto para la juventud, y para gente no tan joven. Es por eso que para entender más esta cultura es necesario hablar de sus inicios y su historia.

Los inicios de la cultura gamer se pueden rastrear hasta Ya que fue en ese año cuando se lanzó el primer videojuego conocido como CRT Amusement Device Dispositivo de Entretenimiento de Tubos de Rayos Catódicos.

Posteriormente, fue lanzado el videojuego OXO, también conocido como Nought and Crosses, que fue elaborado por Alexander S. Aquí el jugador debía competir contra una computadora al clásico juego de tres en raya en una cuadrícula de 3X3, donde la X o el O deben formar una línea de tres espacios seguidos.

Sin embargo la cultura gamer tomó fuerza cuando siete años después, el programador William Higginbotham desarrolló un simulador de tenis, bautizado como Tennis for Two.

Este fue el primer videojuego que permitió la interacción de dos jugadores a la vez. En el año fue lanzada la primera consola de videojuegos cuyo funcionamiento se complementaba con una pantalla de televisión.

Esta consola fue comercializada por Philips y permitía la carga de algunos juegos pregrabados. Los títulos de por aquel entonces contaban con una muy baja calidad en píxeles. Fue en la década de los 80 y 90 que la cultura gamer se convirtió en algo lucrativo. Por lo que empresas desarrolladoras de tecnología como Atari, Namco, Nintendo o Sega, se enfocaron en desarrollar sus propias consolas de videojuegos.

Una de las que tuvo mayor auge fue el Atari That's their actual data from their SCC filings. So you cannot tell me that if we raise the wages of workers by a little bit that Bobby Kotick could not take that hit personally and still be okay. He makes 28 million a year. He's going to be fine. Kinema admits all the gains made this year are but the first small steps of thousands.

For any of this to yield concrete results, ultimately, winning gamers over to the GWU's cause is crucial. And I think we absolutely have to," she says.

A lot of things that gamers are currently concerned about, things like exploitative DLC, things like gambling mechanics being implemented into the industry on a wide scale — I think we can find common ground with people who play games, not just those who make games. Common ground on its own might not be enough, though.

Shortly after Telltale Games fired its workforce and prior to declaring bankruptcy, the company revealed it was speaking to external "development partners" to finish The Walking Dead. The reaction from fans was generally positive; the reaction from developers was overwhelmingly negative.

How could this be considered a continuation of the same series when people, not logos, make games, after all? More than anything it served as a reminder that as gamers we tend to fall in love with characters, not their creators. As an audience we are loyal to products, not the people behind them.

For Bianco, common ground isn't enough — a common sense of humanity is what's required. If someone gets burnt out and leaves a company, they can often be replaced without gamers or the wider world even noticing, let alone caring.

By showing gamers that developers are real people, with real lives inside and outside of our work, we hope to increase empathy and reduce toxicity aimed at them.

That makes it harder for companies to mistreat them, too. Colwill echoes this sentiment, and points out that the PR hype machine and by extension the games press has a role to play in this equation. You could never, with a PR handler in the room, with all respect to PR handlers, have a dev go on record and say, 'Yes, working conditions are terrible.

Any gamer that has a job should be able to understand that they want to get paid fairly at that job, and it's no different. It's about bridging that gap. And it's going to be hard because it is counter to what everyone who buys games has been taught for decades. The reality is that organizing and unionizing is the only way.

So the question is how long until we figure it out? It's not a question of if, it's a question of when. There are no other options. For regular updates on the biggest news and reviews in gaming delivered to your inbox every week:.

What will these groups negotiate over? It depends on the workplace. Every contract is different, because different workplaces have different needs. But typically, negotiations cover topics such as pay including salary tiers, annual increases, overtime compensation, and pay equity ; benefits like health insurance and paid time off ; and rules governing workplace misconduct and disciplinary actions.

The process of negotiating a contract typically has one universal goal across unions and workplaces: to improve the lives of workers by fighting for a fair share. Some independent unions operate without a legal contract, solely using the collective power of the workforce to make changes within the workplace.

Other independent unions do work toward legal contracts, and those operate just like typical unions. The group has had a number of successes , like when data center workers won back a bonus that had been taken away, or when the union took collective action to stop the company from deadnaming a trans employee on his Google badge.

It comes down to showing up for each other, talking about our problems, and learning how to act in concert. Google, for its part, has more than , employees, according to recent data.

That means that in order for a union there to be formally recognized, thousands of employees would need to express support for unionization. Working without a contract, the Alphabet Workers Union hopes to begin creating change now, long before a recognized union is viable. The union was founded by labor activist and former Amazon worker Chris Smalls , and had no traditional union help.

All of that helped in the places where traditional unions are particularly beneficial; they have so many resources, both financial and legal, that can be harder to obtain for smaller unions. I had seen the power that they could have over the workplace. We submitted [the Alberta Labour Board application] on April That Friday, we had executives from Keywords Studios flying to Edmonton.

But at that point, it was already too little, too late, because most of the individuals were already signed onto the union.

What really resonated a lot with our members leading up to the vote was how their actions were already improving the workplace. We were supposed to be back in the office in mid-May, which was a huge deal for a lot of us.

Unionizing, for me, is about having a group of highly aligned folks who all agree on fundamental principles of racial, gender, and other types of justice, regardless of the specific form they take, and obviously tailored to the games industry. We can lend our collective power to other struggles.

Our industry is steeped in not just overwork and crunch and mismanaged timelines and other exploitations, like that of QA workers, but connecting those fundamental labor issues to the larger picture of the racial and gender struggle. You do your yearly evaluation and you hear how great you did that year.

Maybe you get promoted. I was really annoyed. I had to negotiate myself a pay raise for the first time in nine years. The whole point of the union is to give you a framework to organize.

You can talk to your co-workers, and with a union, you can leverage that power. The moment that we started the ball rolling on unionization was really when it looked like it was becoming even more unsustainable to live off our wages which is typically not much more than minimum wage here.

After working at home during the pandemic for around two years, we were informed that it was going to be mandatory to work in the office. While the client studio we work for does have more flexibility about hybrid work and the impact it would have on them, we were informed that there would be no further support given to offset the new costs of getting to work.

I was also concerned that with no options to work from home, and a very reasonable studio policy that you should not come to work if you have COVID symptoms, meant that if you got sick, with COVID or otherwise, you could be missing out on weeks of pay.

We have no sick leave and I typically try to save my vacation days for periods of complete studio shutdowns where we may or may not be paid. Doing the back of the napkin math on the average cost of living here, those extra costs could have easily put workers in a position where they would have to choose between gas to go to work or groceries.

Although that was the catalyst to get us to start talking about unionization, once we started talking about our current issues I definitely realized some of the issues I was feeling were definitely felt across the team. We were able to share information and realized we were being paid much under what other workers doing similar jobs at different studios in the same city, and that many of us had taken on more responsibilities without a pay raise or title change to reflect that.

Eventually, once we officially submitted to unionize, they rescinded the return to office requirement, which I think really showed us the power of a union in getting our employers to listen to our concerns.

After layoffs, I ended up connecting with another teammate, and we started a Discord. We saw the company careening towards a financial wall — no one was paying attention or giving it a second thought.

We started organizing on Discord. We got a band of, like, five to six people that ended up growing to We were trying to get some worker power, so we could lead this in a safer direction. We were predicting another layoff, and we wanted to prepare for it this time. We built some infrastructure. We set up job boards and resume review channels.

We were trying to set up housing assistance and provide resources during a really tough time. After another round of layoffs, we started passing out the Discord invite further. We want to be an alternative to management. We want to help provide the things that management is failing [to provide].

All it takes is a chat among co-workers — to get to know each other and their feelings in the workplace, including how it can be improved. No one else can do that work for a union. Yes, unionizing, and talking about unionizing, is legally protected in the U.

by the National Labor Relations Act, but the Communications Workers of America suggests keeping these conversations away from work areas — including company messaging systems and devices and physical offices. The fear of upsetting management, facing union busting, or risking job security is justified.

Organizing workers eventually have to talk about the union with their employer , but this will be when the union is ready to go public. or, nowadays, hop on a Zoom call.

Being able to empathize and give [your co-workers] an opportunity for catharsis, independent of union organizing, is just healthy, and a lot of people need that, especially these days. I think if we worked together and went to the boss, we could probably get him to change his mind.

That tends to get people on board. Legal votes, a lot of stuff. More support means a more powerful union, and part of the process is outreach — talking to more and more people about how a union could benefit them. There are typically difficult conversations and conflict within groups.

Unions can make huge progress while quietly doing the work of organizing. But of course, as more workers get involved in the conversation, management will be more likely to hear the rumblings of change. But workers at Keywords Studios wanted a union representative that was smaller and more local, which is why they went with the United Food and Commercial Workers Canada.

For independent unions, the process works the same — but without that external legal support built in. However, union experts recommend building much more support than that, especially if management may object.

A supermajority of workers supporting a union effort strengthens its position when going public. At this point, organizing workers are usually ready to approach management to request recognition or kick off a National Labor Relations Board vote.

This happens in an official capacity, and probably with assistance from a larger union — if employees are working with one at all.

An independent union would likely hire legal assistance to help with this step. Union groups like CODE-CWA or UFCW Canada help facilitate this process and provide support, but workers as a whole communicate together through this single voice, working toward their first contract.

Once an organizing campaign has gone public, there are ways for fans to help, and ways for developers to communicate appropriate methods of assistance to those fans. People really, passionately love video games, and a lot of folks want to support the people making them.

We did that in the Voltage writer strike, and it was a successful tactic at Riot during the walkout, but it is not safe or tactical to do outreach to fans before you have an extremely solid organizing foundation within your studio and you are nearing going public.

Having support from folks is huge. Workers from Activision Blizzard, Riot Games, Vodeo Games, Ubisoft, and others have Twitter accounts to help spread the word straight from union representatives. Support on social media, and messages tagging official company channels, can be one effective way to get fans involved without stepping over any lines.

The general consensus among union experts is that fans should follow the lead of workers, which is why organizers recommend communicating to fans through a single source — a dedicated social media account. Regardless of when officials in management learn about an organizing effort — and regardless of whether they support it — they will begin putting together their own team to deal with the union.

How that plays out depends on the company. Workers there approached management with proof of union support across the company, so there was no need for a vote.

Vodeo founder Asher Vollmer outwardly supported the effort. More often than not, however, management pushes back on or questions union efforts to varying degrees. Union busting is when a company starts an outright campaign against unionization efforts. The goal of these campaigns is to influence union elections, specifically by swaying folks toward voting no.

A lot of the tactics of those firms are similar and easy to spot. CWA put together a Union Busting Playbook , which outlines different ways in which companies try to influence unionization efforts, such as making new promises, hiring union consultants, pressuring workers, and delaying elections or negotiations for the purpose of avoidance.

In October , the labor board found merit in a complaint from CODE-CWA that accused the company of illegally withholding those raises. Drawing out the process unnecessarily is another common union-busting strategy, organizers said, a technique that slowly wears down unionizing workers.

Organizers told Polygon that unionizing workers can lean on their colleagues for solidarity during that time, and continue to familiarize themselves and others with the protections and facts laid out by the NLRB. Between support and union busting, there are companies that choose to be neutral.

Workers have made real progress, and may have already used their collective power to effect change. Some groups will stop here and continue to rely on that collective power, but others find it important to get a contract in writing.

A union contract, also known as a collective bargaining agreement CBA , is the only legally binding way to ensure that management keeps its promises of a fair workplace.
