Google workers announce global union alliance

Google employees across 10 countries on Monday announced they would be forming a global union alliance aimed at holding the tech giant accountable.

Alpha Google, named in recognition of Google’s parent company Alphabet, was announced just weeks after more than 200 Google employees in the U.S. announced the creation of the Alphabet Workers Union.

“[Google] is a place where many workers came to change the world—to make it more democratic—only to find Google suppressing speech and cracking down on worker organizing while consolidating monopolistic power,” the Alpha Global alliance said in a joint statement.
