Labor Group Accuses Google of Illegally Firing Workers to Stifle Unionism
Posted On: Dec 10, 2019
Dec. 10, 2019 | ORGANIZING | The Communications Workers of America union filed a federal labor charge against Alphabet’s Google on Thursday, accusing the company of unlawfully firing four employees to deter workers from engaging in union activities. The complaint will trigger a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) investigation into whether Google violated the four individuals’ right to collectively raise concerns about working conditions. Google fired the four named employees “to discourage and chill employees from engaging in protected concerted and union activities,” the filing states. “Its actions are the antithesis of the freedoms and transparency it publicly touts.” Google did not respond to a request for comment on the filing, though it has said the four workers were let go for violating the company’s data-security policies… Unions.org
