Unionized temp workers at Microsoft lose jobs, settle NLRB case after court delays (Bloomberg Businessweek)

August 23, 2018

Temporary Workers of America, a union of bug testers for Microsoft Corp., settled an NLRB case after it dragged on too long, Bloomberg Businessweek reported. The union successfully organized in 2014, winning the right to negotiate with temp agency Lionbridge Technologies Inc., which provides marketing, testing and language services. Within a few years, however, Lionbridge had eliminated all their jobs. The workers said a union-busting complaint they filed in December 2016 with the NLRB against Microsoft dragged on too long, and they settled to get financial relief.
