New Delhi: Some Google Maps Contractors appear to be dissatisfied with the company’s return to office orders. According to a report in The New York Times, about 60% of the more than 200 employees of the outsourced firm Cognizant have signed a petition denying the requirement to stay in office for five working days. The workers are based in Bothel, Washington, USA.
According to the order, contract workers will be required to work five days a week from June 6. Google Directly, they are not eligible for the tech giant’s three-day work-week policy and have applied for the same flexibility.
“Gas is currently about $ 5 per gallon, and many of us in the office cannot afford to stay close to the office because of our low pay and high cost of bottle accommodation,” they wrote in a petition. Gas prices hit a record high in the United States this month (May).
Get support from Alphabet Workers Union
The Google Maps workers’ petition was supported by the Alphabet Workers Union (AWU), a union representing employees of Google’s parent company Alphabet. The AWU backed the workers’ demands in a series of tweets. “We support our members because they apply management to an RTO policy that is flexible, prioritizes employee safety and protects the quality of Google Maps, which these employees like,” said a tweet.
