“Currently, a small group of mostly white and male executives makes decisions that profoundly impact workers and the world beyond, with very little accountability… This needs to change. And to change it those most at risk must be given a voice in decision making, and a seat at the table… It is time for oversight, accountability, and for workers to truly have a say in decisions that affect their lives and the world around them.” 

— Google Walkout organizers

The tech industry is rife with unfair treatment of workers of all stripes and the development of products harmful to our communities. The most effective path to address these issues is for workers to leverage their collective strength to push companies in the right direction. Collective Action in Tech started as a project to document those collective actions and has evolved into a platform for workers to tell their stories, share resources, and theorize the tech workers movement together. Through experimentation and open-ended dialogue, we want to create a space for us to reflect on the tech worker movement’s past, and invent its future.

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 former tech worker and writer
  • Kristen Sheets, a tech worker and writer
  • Nataliya Nedzhvetskaya, a sociologist who researches tech and labor
  • Sarvesh Rajasekaran, a tech worker
