A new year opens new doors
As we enter a new year, we remain committed to creating the best possible workplaces for people who make a living in the tech industry. When both labor and management bring their voices to the negotiating table, employees, shareholders and customers alike benefit.
This includes the more than 300 employees of Microsoft’s ZeniMax Media studios who have exercised their legal right to vote to form a union. This is consistent with the new groundbreaking principles of labor neutrality established last year by the Communications Workers of America and Microsoft. During 2023, we hope to bring the same agreement and principles to Activision Blizzard, which Microsoft has proposed to acquire.
We are not asking the FTC to ignore competition issues. On the contrary, we believe it is important to seek solutions that protect competition and consumers while promoting the needs of workers, economic growth and American innovation.
We believe this is the spirit that led Congress to create the FTC in 1914.
It is a spirit worth keeping alive today.
