Google’s Motto used to be “Don’t Be Evil” – we are working to make sure they live up to that AND more.
Alphabet workers have power together
We recognize our power as Alphabet workers—full-time employees, temporary employees, vendors, and contractors—comes from our solidarity with one another and our ability to collectively act to ensure that our workplace is equitable and Alphabet acts ethically.
We are responsible for the technology that we bring into the world, and recognize that its implications reach far beyond Alphabet. We will work with those affected by our technology to ensure that it serves the public good.
We will ensure our working conditions are inclusive and fair. There is no place for harassment, bigotry, discrimination, or retaliation. We prioritize the needs and concerns of the marginalized and vulnerable. Workers are essential to the business. The diversity of our voices makes us stronger.
Why We Organize
Alphabet workers have power together.
We recognize that our power as Alphabet workers comes from our solidarity with one another regardless of our employment classification.
Alphabet can make money without doing evil.
We must prioritize the wellbeing of society and the environment over maximizing profits. Alphabet’s guiding principle used to be “Don’t be evil.” Help us be Alphabet’s conscience.
We believe that all Alphabet workers deserve a voice.
Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, and has the right to a welcoming environment regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, class, caste, country of origin, political persuasion, or religion.
Our power as Alphabet workers comes from our solidarity with one another.
Alphabet should provide all extended workforce workers with healthcare, family leave, or PTO benefits.
Alphabet is obligated to create a safe workplace for all workers, including freedom from abusers.
Alphabet must defend the privacy of users who are searching for ways to exercise their bodily autonomy.
From the start, Alphabet has had a culture of workers speaking up when the company made mistakes.
Alphabet has a long history of worker organizing at the company. Some efforts were more public than others. In every case workers banded together to create fairer hiring practices, to improve the security and privacy of our products, to stop unethical contracts, to call out sexual harassment in the workplace, to level the playing field for temps, vendors, and contractors, and to fight for racial equity in the workplace. Workers saw significant victories, but more roadblocks appeared.
