WHY WE ARE ORGANIZING
Have you ever felt exploited by the game industry? Are you in a precarious situation? No job stability and in desperate need of support? Are you losing hope that you can work in a medium and industry you love at all? Can't stand how your fellow workers are treated?
Welcome to Game Workers Unite!
We are an international grassroots movement and organization dedicated to unionizing the game industry. We are game workers interested in organizing with everyone who helps make games. And we mean everyone, if you work at a game company, work on a small indie team, do freelance or contract work, and more, you are a game worker and you deserve the protection and support of your fellow workers by standing together in union.
We build our movement through local grassroots organizing because we understand that worker power comes from the bottom up, no one can speak for workers better than themselves, and every studio, community, region, and country is different and must be organized from within it's own unique circumstances. To this end we found local chapters, aid community building, develop and provide organizer training, work with existing labor unions and organizations, and share resources on an international level.
We seek to bring hope to and empower those suffering in this industry.
