IBM Workers to stage virtual strike in Second Life

Home / Second Life / IBM Workers to stage virtual strike in Second Life

The calendar is on the wall for strike planning, the strike headquarters is ready, even the T-shirts on on the rack ready to be donned.

It’s just another day in union organizing, right?

Wrong.

Because this strike is being organized in virtual reality and some of the strike action will take place there also. You can read all about it here.

I spoke to one of the organizers yesterday and the biggest push right now is to get workers who haven’t used Second Life to sign up and get oriented in the world. The global union organization has done a good job of providing bare bones orientation. In fact Linden Labs could take some lessons in concise information as included in the unions sign up kit!

Even as I spoke, interested activists were teleporting into the centre from around the globe and offering help to novel action.

The union headquarters can be found inworld at Commonwealth Island 103.171.22
