Temp workers at Microsoft supplier sign first union contract amid layoffs
After years of negotiations, a group of temporary workers at Microsoft supplier Lionbridge Technologies has signed its first union contract with the company. Key provisions of the contract with Lionbridge include changes to the temporary worker classification, pay raises, severance pay, increased time off and paid holidays, said Philippe Boucher, who spearheaded the unionization effort. He and many of his fellow contractors felt like second-class citizens in the office because they didn’t get many of the same benefits bestowed upon some of the people they worked with on a daily basis.
