As Activision Blizzard announced now, all contracts of QA employees are transformed into full-time contracts. With this step, the workforce of Activision Publishing will grow by 25% and will receive a minimum wage of $ 20 in the future.
One reason for this step is certainly the requirement of Raven Softwares QA team that work for two months already laid down in December and the re-adjustment of several dismissed Raven employees wanted to achieve. Ultimately, the employees spoke out for the establishment of a union.
On request, whether these colleagues were again set, a representative of Activision Blizzard: “The conversion of nearly 1100 contracts at Activision Blizzard is not related to the operations at Raven. These things are solely limited to Raven. The testers whose contracts were not renewed were and are always invited to promote any jobs in the company. “
Activision rejects a trade union or its foundation. With reference to a currently pending proceedings at the National Labor Relations Board, another representative of the publisher to Bloomberg have briefed that the new Terms and Conditions do not apply to those RAVEN employees, which pronounce themselves for the foundation foundation. Obviously, this is another attempt to torped the efforts of the workforce.
