&ltWriters for Lovestruck, a mobile game produced by Voltage Entertainment USA, have won an average 78 per cent pay increase and greater transparency at work after a ground-breaking 21-day strike. It is the first successful game worker strike in the history of the game development industry.

Pic related about game workers is from DOPE periodical. This is a paper from here in fishandchipsland. It looks like a more anarchist version of the Big Issue. I've been to one of the distro points in London, 56a Crampton Street. It's been there for years. I used to work at the International Press Cuttings Bureau on Walworth Road, nearby. I only lasted six months. But I was talking to one guy there. He said he was planning to only do a few months there, and then go travelling around Europe. But he never did, it was in the 1970s,and he'd been at the Bureau ever since…broken dreams… :-(
The paper can be read online as well as bought from homeless vendors https://dogsection.org/press/dope12

I had no idea about this. Hopefully this will give strength to future organizing efforts and strikes in bigger companies.

This is their work in case you're curious:


How are coomers able to strike anyways? You'd think that porn games would be the last place to get unionized.


I'm guessing it's probably because it's a niche within a niche within a niche, so the company is relatively small.

#Voices4Devs: Voice Actors Give Online Support for Game Unionization
>April 12, 2019

>As more people working in video games try to form their own union, they’ve recently gotten another burst of online support. Apparently starting on April 2, voice actors united under the #Voices4Devs hashtag on Twitter to call attention to the developers they work with on games.

>A wide variety of voice actors from AAA titles and indies have joined in[…]
>Game Workers Unite, a key organization dedicated to the unionization movement, and others in the game development community have responded positively to the show of online support from voice actors[…]
>SAG-AFTRA, whom Game Workers Unite appropriately mentioned as an influence, is the acting community’s union.
>SAG-AFTRA is also a member of AFL-CIO, the largest federation of unions in America, and who shared a public statement with Kotaku that expressed support for game developers and their efforts to unionize in February.
>Seeing voice actors give online support for game unionization might remind people of another time they took an even more active stand in the game industry. According to NPR, voice actors under SAG-AFTRA—including the prolific Jennifer Hale, whose roles include Mass Effect‘s female Commander Shepard—refused to work with many AAA game companies, going on a strike that started in 2016 and ended in 2017.



Here's a video on video game unionization made 3 years ago. I think its still relevant as it gives a pretty good recap of unionization efforts in the games industry.
