In June of 2022, Microsoft announced to our employees and workers around the globe four principles explaining Microsoft’s approach to labor organizing. And in the weeks that followed, Microsoft and the Communication Workers of America (CWA) announced a groundbreaking neutrality agreement for the tech industry and labor sector, designed to go into effect if Microsoft was successful in its acquisition of Activision Blizzard. 

Now, more than sixteen months later, as Microsoft has closed its transaction to acquire Activision Blizzard, we affirm our commitment to our labor principles and innovative approach to union partnerships.  Microsoft remains steadfast in our support of our current and future employees in whatever choice they make about their workplace and their representatives.  We look forward to meeting, listening to and learning from our new Activision Blizzard employees and continuing our collaborative engagement with CWA and the workers it represents.
