Alphabet union alleges contractors were banned from discussing wages

From CNET: The Alphabet Workers Union on Thursday alleged that Google contractors were banned from discussing wages, according to a complaint filed with the National Labor Relations Board.

One contractor, named Shannon Wait, was suspended last week after complaining about conditions at the South Carolina data center where she works, the union said. Wait said she was targeted after asking why some workers didn't receive promised bonuses. She said she was also questioned by management about a post on her personal Facebook page in which she shows support for the Alphabet union.

The complaint was filed against Adecco, the Google staffing partner that employs Wait, as well as Alphabet, Google's parent company.

Adecco didn't respond to a request for comment. Google didn't immediately have a comment. The news was earlier reported by Bloomberg.
