纽约(美国有线电视新闻网商业频道)一名法官命令谷歌交出数百份内部文件——其中许多与它试图取消员工工会的努力有关——作为国家劳工关系委员会关于这家科技巨头解雇前雇员的案件的一部分。

2019 年,一群最近被谷歌 (GOOGL GOOGLE) 解雇的工人向 NLRB 提起了不公平的劳工行为指控,声称他们因公开谈论公司的行为而被解雇,例如签署有争议的政府合同,以及参与在受保护的劳工组织中。谷歌坚称,这些员工因屡次违反其政策而被解雇。但在 2020 年,NLRB 提起诉讼,指控谷歌在其中两次解雇中违反了劳动法,声称它非法针对和监视从事组织活动的员工。

行政法官保罗·博加斯 (Paul Bogas) 于周五发布的这项最新裁决标志着谷歌在为劳工索赔辩护方面受到的打击。与此同时,大型科技公司与其员工之间的一场更大规模的战斗也在升温。去年 1 月,谷歌及其母公司 Alphabet 的员工宣布成立 Alphabet 工人工会,这是一个隶属于美国通信工人的少数族裔工会,这标志着科技行业迈出了历史性的一步。

博加斯在裁决中表示,谷歌错误地声称这些作为前雇员案件的一部分被传唤的文件受到律师-客户特权或工作产品特权的约束,称该公司的论点“没有说服力”和“过度扩张” 。”

谷歌发言人詹妮弗罗德斯特罗姆在给 CNN Business 的一份声明中表示,该公司不同意这些文件的描述。

声明中写道:“这里的根本案例与工会组织无关,它是关于员工违反明确的安全协议以不恰当地访问机密信息和系统。”

Google ordered to turn over documents related to anti-union efforts in NLRB case

New York (CNN Business)A judge has ordered Google to turn over hundreds of internal documents many related to its efforts to quash an employee union as part of a National Labor Relations Board case over the tech giant's firing of former employees.

In 2019, a group of workers who had recently been fired from Google (GOOGL GOOGLE) filed unfair labor practice charges with the NLRB, claiming they had been fired for speaking out about the company's practices, such as signing controversial government contracts, and for engaging in protected labor organizing. Google has maintained that the employees were let go for repeated violations of its policies. But in 2020, the NLRB filed a complaint alleging Google had violated labor laws with two of the firings, claiming it had unlawfully targeted and surveilled employees engaged in organizing activities.

This latest ruling by administrative judge Paul Bogas, issued on Friday, marks a blow to Google in defending against the labor claims. It also comes as a larger battle heats up between big tech companies and their employees. Employees at Google and its parent, Alphabet, announced the launch of the Alphabet Workers Union, a minority union affiliated with the Communications Workers of America, last January, marking an historic step for the tech industry.

In his ruling, Bogas said Google had wrongfully claimed that the documents, which were subpoenaed as part of the former employees' case, were subject to attorney-client privilege or work product privilege, calling the company's arguments "not persuasive" and "an overreach."

In a statement to CNN Business, Google spokesperson Jennifer Rodstrom said the company disagrees with the characterization of the documents.

"The underlying case here has nothing to do with unionization, it's about employees breaching clear security protocols to access confidential information and systems inappropriately," the statement reads.
