The U.S. labour board dunks on Google for allegedly spying on workers who were organizing employee protests and firing them, LinkedIn gets chatty about business travel, and a COVID vaccine supply chain gets targeted by hackers.
It’s all the tech news that’s popular right now. Welcome to Hashtag Trending! It’s Friday, December 4, and I’m your host Alex Coop.
The U.S. National Labor Relations Board filed a complaint against Google recently, alleging the tech giant violated American labour laws by spying on workers who were organizing employee protests, and then firing two of them. The labour board says Google’s behaviour in this case is a huge no-no and actually illegal. The reaction online has been pretty consistent – few people are surprised about the tech giant’s actions, but that doesn’t remove the frustration many feel when it comes to preventing workers from unionizing and fighting for better working conditions.
