Netroots Nation Panel with CODE-CWA

This year’s Netroots Nation conference in Pittsburgh featured a keynote session with AFA-CWA President Sara Nelson and a CODE-CWA hosted panel entitled “Beat the Boss: Lessons from Worker Organizers in Tech & Games.”

Nelson joined filmmaker Abigail Disney and former Disney theme park custodian Artemis Bell for the keynote. The group discussed Disney’s new film, “The American Dream and Other Fairy Tales,” and Nelson stressed the importance of widespread union organizing to hold corporations accountable and to ensure that profits are directed toward workers and not to Wall Street. “We have to take on Amazon, Starbucks, Disney, Delta Air Lines – we have to take on these companies together. Because if they're allowed to get away with undermining anyone, they're going to do it everywhere,” Nelson said.

The CODE-CWA panel, moderated by Motherboard reporter Edward Ongweso, included Kara Fannon, a founding member of the Activision Blizzard King Worker Committee Against Sex & Gender Discrimination; former Activision Blizzard worker Jessica Gonzalez; CODE-CWA campaign lead Emma Kinema; and Alphabet Workers Union Executive Chair Parul Koul. The group discussed their experiences organizing and the tactics companies use to prevent workers from having a voice.

Members of CODE-CWA discussed organizing at the Netroots Nation conference.
