Several employees at Raven Software, one of the development teams under Activision Blizzard, are walking out to protest layoffs at the company. Several members of the QA team were laid off last week, and other employees are asking that they be reinstated, saying Activision Blizzard had promised them better pay in the future.
On Tuesday, quality assurance testers in Texas and Minnesota, as well as some working at Blizzard in Irvine, California will join Raven Software contractors in solidarity, and in protest of the total of 20 people that Activision Blizzard laid off as of Monday. As part of the walkout, which has no set end date, workers are demanding that all Raven quality assurance contractors, including the ones laid off Friday, receive full-time positions and that the company reverses the past week’s layoffs at Raven.
However, the Activision Blizzard spokesperson said the company is “converting approximately 500 temporary workers to full-time employees in the coming months.” And on Monday, A Better ABK, an advocacy group made by Activision Blizzard employees, reported that Treyarch, another Activision studio known for its work on Call of Duty, would be converting “all positions” held by current temporary staff and workers from the staffing agency Volt Workforce Solutions to full-time roles.
This is just the latest in a series of problems at Activision Blizzard. Its sexual harassment, assault, and discrimination scandal has continued apace since July, when the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing sued the company. More and more employees are coming forward with new reports from within the company. Most recently, a report last month in the Wall Street Journal leveled allegations against CEO Bobby Kotick.
Over 1,800 workers have signed a petition calling for Kotick’s resignation, a call to action later echoed by a group of Activision Blizzard shareholders with 4.8 million shares between them. Six state treasurers wrote to the company’s board of directors to express their concern over Thanksgiving weekend.
