Phil Spencer is ready to recognize the Raven union after the deal with Activision Blizzard is finalized

The game industry workers' alliance organized by Raven Software testers has been officially recognized.
However, Activision Blizzard, for whom its members work, does not agree to cooperate with the union.
Apparently, this will only happen \"at the behest of the top\" when ActiBlizz falls under Microsoft's wing.During a town hall meeting with Xbox Game Studios employees, Microsoft's head of gaming Phil Spencer said he will recognize the Game Workers Alliance when the deal to buy Activision Blizzard is completed.We will fully support the existing employee organization.
We believe the employees have a right to do so.
[The union] is something that can be part of the relationship between the company and the people who work for it.

The executive also clarified that at the moment Microsoft has not established a relationship with either the Alliance, or with the Communication Workers of America (Communication Workers of America), a part of which is the organization of testers Raven.Earlier Microsoft had limited itself to saying that it would not interfere with the unification of professionals in Activision Blizzard.
Meanwhile, the deal between the two giants is still under review by regulatory authorities.
It has become a little closer to completion - the shareholders of ActiBlizz almost unanimously voted in favor of the merger.
