CODE-CWA Press & Updates

“The last worker who walked out said only five or six workers were left. They had a bunch of managers, HR people, safety ambassadors doing their work. All the people who normally don’t have to do the work had to." —Christian Zamarrón, an organizer with Amazonians United Chicagoland on April 7’s Strike Over Amazon’s New 'Megacycle' Shifts

In a historic milestone for the tech industry, Glitch workers have signed a collective bargaining agreement with the company. The contract, which was ratified overwhelmingly by union members, will last for 11 months. It’s the first agreement signed by white collar tech workers in the United States, according to a press release from the Communications Workers of America (CWA).

After a rigorous organizing campaign, software engineers, campaigners and other workers successfully won voluntary recognition from EveryAction for their union at Mobilize, a community organizing app company. All eligible workers joined the new Mobilize union. The union is the latest to form as part of CWA's effort to organize tech workers, following last year's unionization of Glitch workers and the formation of the Alphabet Workers Union in January.
