An anonymous worker has filed a complaint to Nintendo of America, accusing the gaming giant of breaching an employee's legal entitlement to form a union.

Nintendo is being cited for releasing a worker within the past half-year for an alleged connection with a union. The National Labor Relations Act, initially published in 1935, assures the right of employees to form unions, take part in mutual bargaining, and take collaborative measures such as strikes.

In an email to the Washington Post, Nintendo acknowledged and responded to the accusations at hand.

We are aware of the claim, which was filed with the National Labor Relations Board by a contractor who was previously terminated for the disclosure of confidential information and for no other reason. Nintendo is not aware of any attempts to unionize or related activity and intends to cooperate with the investigation conducted by the NLRB.”

Nintendo is fully committed to providing a welcoming and supportive work environment for all our employees and contractors. We take matters of employment very seriously.

Nintendo is one of the multiple gaming corporations under review by the National Labor Relations Board. "Call of Duty producer Activision Blizzard allegedly took part in repressive and forcible methods as employees looked to have open discussions regarding salary disparity and put an end to coerced negotiation.
