Back in August of last year, Nintendo faced a second labor complaint that accused the company of firing an employee who asked about unions. For a recap, you can see the summary of the charge below.
Within the previous six months, the Employer discharged an employee(s) because the employee(s) engaged in protected concerted activities by, inter alia, protesting terms and conditions of employment and in order to discourage employees from engaging in protected concerted activities.
8(a)(1) Within the previous six-months, the Employer has interfered with, restrained, and coerced its employees in the exercise of rights protected by Section 7 of the Act by maintaining work rules that prohibit employees from discussing wages, hours, or other terms or conditions of employment.
We’ve now learned that the charge was withdrawn on March 1st, 2023. Unfortunately, we don’t have any details on why this happened. There’s also no word on a settlement that came about. We’ll try to get more details on this and report back soon.
