Professor and Chair of Labor and Employment Studies John Logan spoke to Equal Times about the tools big tech firms use to fight unionization.
“The two big advantages that digital giants have over other companies when it comes to fighting unions is that they have both enormous financial resources, but also algorithms and sophisticated surveillance tools that allow them to anticipate any labour movement” Logan says. “New technologies are truly the new frontier of union avoidance. Especially since most of them are not regulated by laws: government agencies are lagging far behind in this area.”
