Online registration is *not* required to attend this workshop. Spots will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis, so make sure to be at the workshop location at least 20 minutes before the starting time.

Let's talk union 101 with Game Workers Unite.

We'll start off with an introduction to unionization and answer some common questions:
  • Where do workers have power in their workplace?
  • What kinds of unions are there?
  • How do they operate?
  • Are they helpful for small indie studios?

After that, we'll kick off a discussion that asks you to share your experiences, questions, and concerns.
This will be a group discussion about what it would mean to unionize in games, how that fixes some things, what can't be fixed by unionization alone, etc.
What are the core issues that game workers face?

Intended audience: game workers with any level of understanding about organized labor, newcomers are more than welcome.
