We asked Adecco and Alphabet to comment.
This is the Alphabet Workers Union’s first official complaint and reflects the group’s approach to demanding change. Rather than pushing for collective bargaining, which would not cover workers under contract with Adecco, the union is using complaints and protests to pressure Google to resolve labor issues.
This pressure will only intensify. Alphabet unions around the world recently formed an alliance tackle issues that involve global coordination, such as the allegedly under-treatment of content moderators. The workers accused Google of fight against unions and otherwise try to thwart the collective action, but any further attempts may face stronger opposition.
