Employees of Activision Blizzard require the resignation of Bobby Kotick
Bobby Kick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, is located in the Hurricane Eye. After taking a new report where it is mentioned that the executive was aware of the cases of harassment within the company, and he himself is accused of inappropriate behavior, the employees of the company now demand the resignation of him.
Through your official Twitter account, members of A Better ABK, organization formed by Employees of Activision Blizzard and King, demand the immediate resignation of Bobby Kick of the position of him. This was what was said:
We have instituted our own zero tolerance policy. We will not be silenced until Bobby Kick has been replaced as Executive Director and will continue to maintain our original demand for third parties by a source chosen by employees. Today we are organizing a strike. We welcome you to join us.
Along with this, Jason Schrader, Bloomberg journalist, has pointed out that more than 100 Activision Blizzard employees have met at the Blizzard campus in Irvine, California, this to demand Kick s resignation. It should be noted that this is an impressive number of people considering that the call was carried out two hours ago, and many of the employees are working from home.
At the moment there is no clear outcome for this controversy. Faced with the recent accusations, the Board of Directors of Activision Blizzard issued a statement where they have mentioned trusting Kick s leadership.
Editor s note:
The employee strike is not new, but today s proposal has a greater weight considering that they are demanding the output of the company s CEO. Although this is probably not happening, the voice of the workers has been clear, and this will surely have repercussions of different types.
