The Communications Workers of America (CWA) represents 18 of the employees at Blizzard Albany.

The NLRB certified the CWA as the representative of the Albany QA employees. Our understanding is that the GWA is affiliated with the CWA.

Bargaining began on May 30, 2023.

Albany, New York

Both Blizzard Albany and the CWA have identified a number of people who will be at the bargaining table.

At the first session:

  • CWA was represented by two CWA representatives and three employee representatives at the table.
  • Blizzard had three representatives at the table.

It is hard to say. First contracts can be complicated because they cover a wide range of topics, such as wages, benefits, work rules, and how the Company and Union interact, among many other things, but we are committed to bargaining in good faith with a goal of reaching a fair agreement.

Our focus is to work with the CWA on a fair agreement for the business, the CWA-represented employees, and the players we serve.
