In this special issue, we present the results of the #WorkersGameJam - a joint collaboration between Notes from Below and Game Workers Unite (UK).

This year’s game jam took place in a very different context to last. With many of us in isolation, we thought that it could provide an opportunity to think through and experiment with ideas about work. Therefore, this year we have decided the focus of the game jam will be on “collective action”.

Collective action in the workplace can, and has, been used to achieve many things for workers. Whether organising a strike, demanding fairer or safer working conditions, negotiating wages, taking action against rounds of redundancies, or even getting a coffee machine installed, it takes organised pressure to achieve these aims. Outside of the workplace, it’s often collective action on the part of activists, protestors, groups, and organisations that has achieved important victories.
