Union Challenges Google’s Job Cuts Despite Billion-Dollar Profits; Fitbit and Google Assistant Teams Affected.

A workers’ union is pushing back against Google’s decision to cut jobs, arguing that the tech giant’s massive earnings make such layoffs unnecessary.

Google confirmed the closure of “a few hundred” roles, impacting teams working on Fitbit, Google Assistant, and hardware, citing a focus on efficiency.

The Alphabet Workers Union disagrees, stating that the company shouldn’t fire employees while making billions in profit. Google defends the move, emphasizing organizational changes for efficiency.

Fitbit and Google Assistant teams, responsible for significant job losses, now face scrutiny.

Despite Google’s Q3 2023 revenue of $76.3bn, the union remains adamant about job retention.

The tech giant plans to support affected employees in finding new roles.
