In the first election for the United States, Raven Software QA testers vote for unionization

A group of talented software developers from the United States voted against, with three members of the Game Workers Alliance (GWA) voting, and one vote was positive. The group receives legal recognition at the Call of Duty: Warzone developers, which was first organized in January as a result of job losses at the end of last year.

After the result, the GWA decided to stream the vote on Twitch, but technical issues forced them to use Twitter Spaces instead. Senator Tammy Baldwin, the party''s home state of Wisconsin, expressed her support to the group. In Wisconsin, several members of the GWA celebrated their unionisation victory by drinking beer and wearing cheese-shaped hats.

According to Bloomberg, employees at Activision Blizzard and Raven Software had sent videos to them to discourage them from voting in favor, arguing that unions couldnt guarantee pay increases and that union contracts would encroach on flexible work. Last week, Activision Blizzard was discovered by US National Labor Relations Board prosecutors to have infiltrated employees in relation to collective action. The company denied that they had acted wrongly.

Activision Blizzard have been mired in controversy and legal action over allegations of sexual harrassment, workplace discrimination, and poor working conditions. Following Microsoft''s $68.7 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard, which began in January and was approved last month, it is now seeking access to company records. This month, Activision Blizzard decided to take out a diversity space tool, which was so bad that it had to use it again.
