Eden Games went on a "symbolic" one-day strike this week, with a proposed redundancy plan targeting 51 members of its 80-strong workforce. The strike occured yesterday in response to alleged "mismanagement" by Atari and in an effort to attract the attention of and hopefully communicate with Atari CEO, Jim Wilson, who according to a post announcing the strike on the Test Drive Unlimited 2 forums, "has never introduced himself to his employees".

The forum post comes from Eden Games' Development Engineer Patrice Béranger, who states that "Eden Games pays now for Atari mismanagement. For several years we are witnessing multiple leader changes at its head, they did not hesitate to get rich despite financial difficulties."

Béranger's post continues: "Restructuring plans have been following each others for 10 years at Atari. Each time the recovery project was beautiful and promising, and ended in a failure. We are skeptical about the proposed project."

Eden is hoping that the strike will open up negotiations with Atari employee representatives regarding redundancy plan measures, to "be sure that an employee of Eden Games is compensated the same way as an employee of Atari" as well as "have real visibility on the future of the studio after the restructuring, especially in giving us the financial records requested by our accountant."

No doubt we'll find out how all of this pans out in the coming days.

[Thanks, Henry]
