Google workers form union amid tussle with company’s executives

Over 200 Google employees have formed a union – ’Alphabet Workers Union.’ Two employees, Parul Koul and Chewy Shaw announced this on an NYT op-ed. This comes amid increasing tensions between employees and the company’s senior executives. Koul and Shaw wrote: ’Our bosses have collaborated with repressive governments around the world.’ They also wrote that Google ’profited from ads by hate groups.’

Lol! Exactly what Google deserves for acting like a dictatorship, I hope this causes them the grief they deserve.

The tech industry has been pretty immune to unions because they treated their people well. Google, Twitter and Facebook are trending away from the "good company to work for" approach and THAT'S what is driving unionization. The primary reason is they are not only monopolizing the online advertising market, but the job market as well... So they don't feel like they have to compete for employees.

A union for overpaid tech workers to argue for social justice. Google created this dumpster fire now they have to live in it. Good luck.

OK, but a hate group to Google tends to be anyone they disagree with. Their behavior with censorship on YouTube alone displays their biases. This isn't a position they took on without the employees. We need regulation to prevent these publishers from pretending they're platforms, when they have a clear political leaning. They are -not- neutral. I don't want to see this ideologically corrupt company becoming more woke at the demands of a labor union. Though that might be the catalyst we need for the company to finally face legislative scrutiny. 230. Now.

Sweet entitlement. They'll love when every single benefit from their cushy tech jobs becomes a bargaining chip for a union junkyard and corporate jackal to haggle over. And, with social sensibilities being what they are now, shaming scabs will not be PC (people just got to eat right).

Amazon workers need to be next. Bezos has enough money to double their pay and still have hundreds of bilions left.

"Koul and Shaw raised worker concerns over the search giant's cooperation with "repressive governments around the world," profits from "ads by a hate group," and failing to address retention issues with people of color." Gotta enjoy the nonsense. 'We do not want to work with repressive governments... also we want more leeway to repress people.'

From Verge article: "The company also ended its forced arbitration policy after 20,000 workers staged a walkout to protest former executive Andy Rubin getting a $90 million exit package after he was credibly accused of sexual harassment. "
