Google has been accused of “union-busting” by activists over the firing of four employees who reportedly were attempting to organize.
The tech giant says the employees were fired for violations of its data security policies, according to a Bloomberg report, which cites a memo sent to all Google employees.
The BBC reports that the employees, dubbed the “Thanksgiving Four,” were fired by Google on Monday.
When contacted by Fox News, Google declined to comment on the terminations or confirm the names of the terminated employees, but did confirm the contents of the note published by Bloomberg.
The employees had their contracts terminated following a protest at Google’s San Francisco office on Nov. 22, according to the BBC, which reported that two of the terminated employees spoke at the protest.
