LGBTQ dating app Grindr ended its remote work policies and forced employees to relocate.
Nearly half of its staff left.
Approximately 80 of Grindr’s 178 workers were forced to leave as of August 31, the CWA said Wednesday.
The CWA also said the return-to-work policy was retaliatory and in response to a union drive at the company.
“Rather than recognize the union, the company issued a new return-to-office policy requiring staff to relocate or quit,” the CWA said in a statement.
The union has filed an unfair labor practice charge against Grindr with the National Labor Relations Board.
Seventy-one percent of employers that are mandating their on-site work policy reported difficulty retaining workers, according to the survey. »
