Ubisoft employees in France went on strike today, demanding “decent wages”, after negotiations with union organizations failed in recent weeks. The studios in Annecy, Montpellier and Paris would be paralyzed due to the charges.

The Syndicat des Travailleurs du Jeu Vidéo (STJV), a union of gaming workers in France, released plans for the strike, which began this Wednesday (14), at the beginning of this month.

In the statement, the STJV mentions that “the administration offered us a budget for increases below inflation, for the second year in a row”. They added that a company that “decides to make employees pay to increase profits is simply unacceptable.”

Days ago, the STJV posted more details on Twitter. They stated that the start of the strike will be organized in the studios in Annecy, Montpellier and Paris.” The STJV also highlighted that Ubisoft “continues to make profits”, suggesting that it has the potential to increase salaries.
