Testbirds and IG Metall hold joint workshop
On February 15, German software testing platform Testbirds and IG Metall (the German Metalworkers’ Union) hosted a joint workshop in Munich. Workers, platform operators, and unionists discussed workers’ experiences and working conditions on the platform. The group agreed to meet a second time and a detailed write-up of the meeting (from the perspective of several workers who were present) is available on the Testbirds blog.
At the workshop we also learned about the forum Microjobbing.de, an independent, worker-operated forum run by one of the testers who was present.
