Workers at Vodeo Organize First U.S. Video Game Union Under CWA

Dec. 15, 2021, 4:28 PM

Workers at Vodeo, a California-based game design company, say they’ve organized as the first union of video game workers in the U.S.

Vodeo Workers United said Wednesday it had won formal recognition from management, the inaugural victory under a Communications Workers of America initiative to organize digital and video game workers.

The union said it will represent an entirely remote workforce spread across the U.S. and Canada, including independent contractors that make up more than half the bargaining unit.
