Developers want UK trade union

A group from the UK games industry has today established Dev Union, which hopes to encourage debate around the establishment of a UK trade union for those in the games industry.

The proposed trade union would be called the UK Video Game Workers Association.

"The Idea of a Union was on my mind before the Blitz Games situation, but it serves as a timely catalyst," said founding Dev Union member Tim Lozinski, a video games artist and animator, and founder of TL Multimedia, with experience as a voluntary union branch official supporting those dealing with redundancy.

"There are many other issues which a union could deal with than just redundancy. There are a lot of ethical issues at play here. This is just the beginning of the beginning of the idea."
