Trade union Solidaires Informatique calls upon employees of Ubisoft’s Paris section to stage a strike following the cancellation of several games.
Ubisoft employees plan to strike following several of the studio’s recent game cancellations.
On Twitter, French trade union Solidaires Informatique called on workers at Ubisoft’s Paris section to stage a strike on Jan. 27 from 2 to 6 p.m. The tweet comes after Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot emailed employees that it was up to them to lead the company back onto the “path of success.” Solidaires Informatique responds to Guillemot’s statement, “The Ball is in our court (but the money stays in his pocket),” the company wrote. The union demanded a 10 percent raise to match inflation, a four-day work week and “transparency on the evolution of the workforce, both locally and globally.”
