Ubisoft Employees To Strike On 27th January Over CEO Statements, Demands Pay Increase & Better Working Conditions

Ubisoft employees to go on strike

Ubisoft has hit a rough patch with numerous game cancellations and delays, on top of layoffs and cuts. CEO Yves Guillemot previously sent an email to all staff saying “The ball is in your court”, sparking further outrage.

In response, employees claim that the management was shifting the blame on employees while demanding more work hours.

Ubisoft Union Members Calls For Strike

Solidaires Informatique, a labour union with members in Ubisoft calls for a strike on 27th January 2023 to protest the CEO’s statements, demanding immediate pay rises of 10% and implementing a four-day work week, which is becoming more common in Europe.

The following are their demands:

  • An immediate 10% increase for all salaries, regardless of annual increases, to compensate for inflation. With the hundreds of millions of euros obtained from Tencent, there is money in the coffers of the employers.
  • The improvement of working conditions, in particular, the implementation of the four-day week.
  • Transparency on the evolution of the workforce, both locally and globally.
  • A strong commitment against disguised dismissals and condemnation of abusive managerial policies that push employees to resign.

The strike seems isolated towards Ubisoft Paris rather than the company as a whole.
