东方6 1开奖结果:Riot Walkout Update: Employee Organizers Petition Board of Directors

"Current conditions are... unlikely to change anytime soon"

海南七星彩开奖结果 www.6gfhw.cn Update, May 24, 2019:?Riot employees seeking a complete end to the use of forced arbitration have drafted a petition to send the development studios board of directors.

An excerpt from the petition says, "Riot has always aspired to be at the cutting edge of game companies. We have also stated that we want to be a world leader in diversity and inclusion. To do both, we need to make shifts not just in our game production, but in our employment practices. Making this change even when there’s a clear cost to the company unequivocally shows Riot’s commitment to changing itself, both to current and future Rioters."

IGN will continue following the story as it develops. The original story is as follows:?

Riot Games has announced that it will not be eliminating the?arbitration clause for current employees that moved some 200-250 employees to stage a walkout last Monday.

Now, nearly two weeks after the demonstration, Riot Games announced in a blog post that "given the complexities of ongoing litigation, we will not change our employee agreements while in active litigation."

"We know not everyone agrees with this decision, but we also know everyone does want Riot to continue to improve.?We remain committed to having a firm answer around extending an opt-out to all Rioters when active litigation concludes," it read.

In a statement to IGN, the walkout's organizers say the policy is "unlikely to change anytime soon. We’re disappointed leadership doesn’t seem to be considering any major changes to their active policy." They go on to say that while they will continue organizing in the coming weeks, "our main goal is to make sure that workers at Riot feel heard and represented, and above all, safe."

That's not all to say that last Monday's walkout had no effect, however. The post from Riot said that in the wake of continued discussions with employees, it has "invited a diverse group of Rioters to participate in reviewing aspects of our Code of Conduct where they have concerns," and formed a new employee committee to "create change and?identify barriers and opportunities to move us forward in D&I and culture."

Speaking with IGN, one of the demonstration's organizers, Jocelyn Monahan, said, "I am looking forward to the review of the Code of Conduct, because it seriously needs to be updated to reflect current Rioters’ concerns for their safety." She declined an invitation to join the D&I council, "Because after the contents of the?Unplugged yesterday I do not feel confident that my voice would be respected," though wasn't at liberty to discuss the specifics of the town-hall-style meeting.

Stay tuned for more updates as the story develops.
