The Microsoft-Activision purchase continues to rise, but the Californian firm receives some serious complaints from the National Labour Relations Board, an independent US federal agency charged with protecting workers' rights.
According to what was discovered after a lengthy investigation, Activision-Blizzard deliberately spyed on his own employees and harmed their right to organize freely. That, at least, is the charge filed by the National Labor Relations Board against the organization headed by Bobby Kotick.
The strike began last year, following the overturning of the Roe v Wade law, which prohibited abortion. Activision-Blizzard employees were initially reluctant to take this risk, and set the strikers under close surveillance, committing an act that was totally against the labor laws.
The situation for Activision-Blizzard, which has always denied everything, is now quite delicate. The NLRB has in fact declared that it has several evidences to support the allegations and is ready to proceed with the lawsuit. So to Activision-Blizzard, which has always denied everything, there is nothing left but to negotiate or face legal action.
We know that SomeGamer colleagues attempted to reach out to Microsoft and Activision at the same time, but neither side refused to make a public comment.
