Video game workers form Microsoft's first US labor union

From ABC News | Technology by Matt O'Brien, AP Technology Writer

A group of video game testers is forming Microsoft's first labor union in the U.S., which will also be the largest in the video game industry.

Communications Workers of America said Tuesday that about 300 quality-assurance workers at Microsoft video game subsidiary ZeniMax Studios have voted to join the union.

Microsoft already told the CWA it would accept the formation of the union at its Maryland-based video game subsidiary, fulfilling a promise it made to try to build public support for its $68.7 billion acquisition of another big game company, Activision Blizzard.
