Raven Software QA workers allowed to move forward with union vote

The National Labor Relations Board in the US has ruled in favour of allowing Raven Software’s quality assurance workers to vote on unionising.

As reported by Polygon, the NLRB ruled on Friday (April 22) that the 21-person team will be able to vote on whether a union is formed or not. Raven Software parent company Activision Blizzard sought to challenge the QA workers’attempt at unionising earlier in the year, wanting to make all 230 members of staff at Raven Software take part in the vote.

According to the NLRB, Raven Software QA workers will have their ballots mailed on April 29, with all ballots being tallied almost a month later on May 23. If a majority of eligible workers vote yes, the union will then move into contract negotiations with Activision Blizzard.
