Google Let Off Employee Activist In The Middle Of Protests

Google has let off at least one of the workers blaming it of striking back in opposition to workplace organizers. Rebecca Rivers has verified that she has been let off as fraction of a bigger decision that fired 4 workers. In a document obtained by the media, the Security and Investigations Team of the firm stated that the 4 had committed “repeated and clear violations” of data security rules, and that they has not just looked at files or calendars during work as had been stated earlier.

Allegedly, the 4 had performed “systematic searches” for workers’ materials, shared it further than their jobs in spite of warnings, and even set alerts for what users were doing and when, comprising therapeutic appointments. This resulted in targeted employees feeling “unsafe or scared,” Google claimed. Other details including calendar screenshots reportedly found their way to users outside the firm.

Rivers has not answered beyond her post verifying the let off. Google has confirmed the document but refused to say anything on the topic.

Whatever took place, the firings are improbable to ease high stress between rank-and-file employees and Google. Protesters at San Francisco campus of the firm this week blamed the firm of employing the alleged security breaches (as a pretext for attacking on organizing employees and placing them on imprecise leave). While it is not obvious if the protesters were aware of the level of the accusations at the time, this will not probably alleviate their issues that the firm is retaliating in opposition to workers who speak out—not when the company has hired an anti-union consultancy, reduced down town meetings, and dealt with earlier complaints related to retaliation.

Speaking of Google, Black Friday is on the corner and Google is sharing a look at the sales it will provide. Beginning this week, you will be capable of getting the Pixel 4XL and 4 for $599—that is a $200 discount.
