A supermajority of workers at BDS Connected Solutions, a Google Fiber subcontractor, have signed union cards and filed with the NLRB to win union recognition and bargaining power on the job. Workers were already dues-paying members of AWU-CWA and are now calling on the NLRB to grant them the bargaining rights that they have earned by successfully organizing their workplace in Kansas City, Missouri. These bargaining rights would force Alphabet to recognize the Alphabet Workers Union as the bargaining unit for workers. The union filing from Kansas City makes it clear that we are gearing up to win bargaining rights to secure more for workers within Alphabet Inc. Join our fight!
We believe that all workers at Google should receive the full wages they are legally entitled to and have earned. We demand that Google immediately pay back all Temps, Vendors and Contractors (TVCs) who have been knowingly underpaid by Google.
It has recently come to light, as reported by The New York Times and The Guardian, that Google has knowingly underpaid TVCs across dozens of countries, in direct violation of pay parity laws across the globe. Google has consistently obscured its employees’ salaries—and now, we know more about why.
Join our fight to dismantle the two-tiered perma-temp system. Sign and share our letter for TVC workers!
Before publicly announcing the Alphabet Workers Union on January 4th, 2021, our union has been involved in affecting change at Alphabet. We will continue to take action when there are injustices in the workplace and when we believe Alphabet isn’t living up to our values.
We will continue to share our efforts here and defend our fellow workers! When we organize, we win! To learn about our successful campaigns, check out our wins.
