French company Ubisoft is one of the biggest game companies in the world. They have created such titles as Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Prince of Persia and Watch Dogs.
Ubisoft has also had a massive issue with sexual harassment claims with its Paris main office being described as a fraternity house.
The workers at the company are now pushing for more input on what goes on at Ubisoft. To do so, they are appealing to gamers around the world.
The employees sent a list of 4 key demands to management. They read:
- Stop promoting and moving known offenders from studio to studio, team to team with no repercussions. This cycle needs to end
- We want a collective seat at the table, to have a meaningful say in how Ubisoft as a company moves forward from here.
- Cross-Industry collaboration. To agree on a set of ground rules and processes that all studios can use to handle these offenses in the future.
- This collaboration must heavily involve employees in non-management positions and union representatives.
The Ubisoft employees are also asking for gamers to support them in their efforts by signing a petition.
They sent a tweet which read, “100 days ago we signed our open letter and set out our four key demands. None of our demands have been met. So today we’re launching a new petition, open for ALL our supporters to sign.”
