Episode Summary

California isn't the only party unhappy with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and its proposed $18 million settlement with Activision Blizzard. The Communications Workers of America (CWA), a labor union that has already helped Activision employees file one charge with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), has decided to bring 31 separate complaints of its own. Are they legitimate? Are they not? Either way they're certainly very focused...on making sure Activision Blizzard leaves open the door for unionization. We're not sure they have standing, but they definitely want a seat...in Virtual Legality.
