Tender Claws, the studio behind The Under and Tendar, have announced they intend to unionize.
The company told Polygon in a statement:
Tender Claws is a small studio that has made an outsized impact on the industry — something that would not be possible without the creativity, talent, and commitment of our employees. We are extremely proud of all we’ve achieved together, and are grateful to work with like-minded people who are eager to explore art, technology, and human connection. We’ve worked hard over the years to make Tender Claws a supportive place to work where employees have the flexibility they need to pursue their own artistic and commercial endeavors, learn new skills, and repeatedly return to work together. The Tender Claws Human Union will no doubt have a positive impact both within and beyond our walls, and we are thrilled to recognize and work with the union, collaborating to make Tender Claws the best working environment it can be.
At least 13 full-time and part-time employees have stated they will be working with the Communications Workers of America’s Campaign to Organise Digital Employees to form the union.
