January 2021: Please note that this site is not the Alphabet Workers Union, which was announced on January 4. For information about the Alphabet Workers Union, please see their web page at www.alphabetWorkersUnion.org , or their Twitter account at @alphabetworkers.
This alphabetworkers.org website is a proof-of-concept for a multi-stakeholder, non-union organization that would complement existing efforts and advocate for pro-worker and pro-stakeholder changes in Alphabet’s business practices. The organization doesn’t presently exist, but it could, if the reform movement chooses to bring it into existence. See section 3 of the Stepping Up Our Game essay for some discussion of what this type of organization could look like.
Feb. 20, 2020: We’re launching a new open, low-traffic one-way news summary email list called Alphabetworkers. You can subscribe here, or read the FAQ. Anybody can sign up, or you can view the list content on the web.
Feb. 20, 2020 update: The November 2019 “Stepping Up Our Game: strategic recommendations to strengthen the Google reform movement” site launch essay now has its own separate page, and is also available via the “collected essays and documents” landing page.
