It'll be a while until we get even close it seems

Both the LCS Players Association and the Americas VALORANT Player Association work to defend the rights of League of Legends and VALORANT players in North America. Both organisations have open lines of communication with Riot Games. Riot won't promise to commit to being at the table for collective bargaining or unions, according to one of the association's executives. Phil Aram, executive director of the LCSPA, responded to a question about creating a legitimate union during an AMA on the VALORANT competitive subreddit today by saying that while unions are fantastic, they ultimately won't do anything without Riot's cooperation.

Following news that players were considering leaving the game to protest changes to the NACL earlier this year, the LCSPA established a list of demands for Riot to follow. However, in the absence of collective bargaining, Riot was under no obligation to accede to such demands.
