A few dozen Google engineers and other workers at the tech giant have organized, having formed a union in secret over the better part of a year, The New York Times reports.

The effort follows pressure by Google employees for clearer ethical and anti-harassment policies and better pay at the Mountain View, Calif.-based company, according to the newspaper.

But the group of 225 engineers and others, called the Alphabet Workers Union and affiliated with the Communications Workers of America, represents a very small proportion of Google’s more than 260,000 employees. Its members said the creation of the so-called minority union was meant to give organizing some traction within notoriously anti-union Silicon Valley.
