Strike in Second Life

by wjw on September 8, 2007

IBM employees are going on strike in Second Life.

During the talks to renew IBM’s Italian internal collective
agreement, the works council, supported by the majority of IBM Italy employees, asked for a small salary increase. IBM responded by cancelling their “productive results benefit”, resulting in a loss of €1000 per year for each employee. For a company that wants to lead in corporate social responsibility, this is unacceptable.RSU (Rappresentenza Sindacale Unitaria) decided to organise the first virtual strike ever in Second Life with the help of UNI (Union Network International). It is time for IBM, a company with one of the highest profits, to share some of the fruits with its workforce. IBM workers will go on strike in Second Life this September.

All union supporters are asked to join them online.

I have to wonder what their avatars are going to look like.

I’m looking forward to another Rain Of Penises attack.
