The union leaders stated that “Alphabet continues to crack down on those who dare to speak out, and keep workers from speaking on sensitive and publicly important topics, like antitrust and monopoly power”.

“Each time workers organise to demand change, Alphabet’s executives make token promises, doing the bare minimum in the hopes of placating workers.”
