Google Workers Form Union to ‘Promote Solidarity, Democracy, and Social and Economic Justice’

This is one way of fighting the great monopolistic power of Google. The best way is if we give power to the 99 percent. Then there wouldn’t be a corporate dictatorship:

Decrying numerous policies and practices they say violate Google’s “don’t be evil” founding principle, more than 200 of the Silicon Valley tech giant’s workers on Monday announced they are forming a union, a move that was applauded by progressive lawmakers and labor advocates nationwide.

The Alphabet Workers Union (AWU)—named after Google’s parent corporation—says it “strives to protect Alphabet workers, our global society, and our world,” and to “promote solidarity, democracy, and social and economic justice.” It will operate as part of the Communications Workers of America and will be open to all 120,000 of the company’s employees.
