Contractors employed by an external company to work at Google signal that they are no longer getting orders and their work is taken over by the company's branch in Kraków. They claim that jobs have started to be moved to Poland because they wanted to create a trade union,as the American portal Vice informs. 

In September 2019, most of the 80 Pittsburgh contractors employed by HCL America voted to join another union - steelworkers. They were to work together under the name of the Pittsburgh Association of Tech Professionals. Now they claim that the duties they performed for Google are transferred to the company's branch in Poland, specifically in Kraków, while the team in Pittsburgh is shrinking.

They were not hired to work for the technology giant, but by the aforementioned HCL America, for which - according to Vice - the union plans of contractors were a problem.

On Thursday, the US National Labor Relations Board, a federal agency that protects the rights of private sector workers, issued a formal complaint against HCL. It accuses the management of this company, that they interviewed employees about other people's union activities, "threatened employees with stricter rules and policies" if they voted for the union and announced delays in granting promotions and raises, Vice reads.
