Game Workers Unite appeared in United Kingdom

After the scandal around Rockstar Games, when it turned out that many of the company's employees were suffering from overwork, or crunchy, gaming industry representatives again started talking about the creation of trade unions. Today it became known that one of the associations of developers became part of the Independent Union of Workers of Great Britain.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, the British branch of the organization Game Workers Unite has received union status. The new department is the first organization in the world that officially represents the interests of developers.

Game Workers Unite intends to fight the "large-scale exploitation" of British developers. The union will pay attention to the lack of diversity of workers, unpaid overtime, contracts with zero time and other problems of the industry.

All former, current, and future industry representatives can join GWU, with the exception of those who can hire and fire employees.

The first meeting of the trade union will be held on December 16, at which official representatives of the organization will be elected.

According to the British Association of Interactive Entertainment, the UK gaming industry is the largest in Europe: it has about 47 thousand employees.
