"Surveillance capitalism depends on the social, and it is only in and through collective social action that the larger promise of an information capitalism aligned with a flourishing third modernity can be reclaimed." - Shoshana Zuboff, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism
Collective Action in Tech is a project that attempts to document all collective actions from workers in the tech industry. The goal of this archive is to provide data and insights on organizing in the tech industry, to find the connections between different efforts, and to build worker power in tech.
The archive lives on GitHub as a repository. Please visit our repository for more information.
Collective Action in Tech is maintained by:
- Ben Tarnoff, a tech worker, writer, and cofounder of Logic Magazine
- Clarissa Redwine, former Kickstarter union organizer
- JS Tan, a tech worker and writer
- Nataliya Nedzhvetskaya, a sociologist who researches tech and labor
- Sarvesh Rajasekaran, tech worker and community organizer
In 2019, the group wrote an article for The Guardian characterizing the tech labor movement over the past decade.
