Google employees form a global union alliance

California: Google employees from around the world form a union alliance, weeks after more than 200 workers at the search engine giant and other units of Alphabet Inc’s parent company formed trade unions for US and Canadian offices.

Alpha Global was formed in coordination with UNI Global Union, a union federation that represents about 20 million workers globally, and includes unions from countries such as the United States, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and the United Kingdom, according to the UNI Global Union.

“The problems in Alphabet – which Alphabet created – are not limited to any one country, and they must be addressed on a global level,” said Kristi Hoffmann, Alphabet’s general secretary.

Alphabet was not immediately available for comment.
