Workers have also accused Activision for using “union-busting” tactics in an attempt to thwart their action, and have called on microsoft to stop the “campaign that is being waged against us”

Responding to the letter, a spokesperson from microsoft told Axios “Microsoft will not stand in the way if Activision Blizzard recognizes a union.” continuing on, they said “Microsoft respects Activision Blizzard employees’ right to choose whether to be represented by a labour organization and we will honor those decisions.”
