Bigpoint staff move to avoid further job cuts

Thursday, 6th December 2012 23:22 GMT By Naren Hooson

Employees at online gaming company Bigpoint have voted to install an employee organisation to represent them. German public services trade union Verdi has assisted the move and will manage working conditions.

The move follows the recent axing of 80 jobs, reports StumbleUpon, and will make it harder for the company to do in the future.

Reaching 300 millions users this week and boasting a 65 game portfolio, Bigpoint offers Battlestar Galactica, DarkOrbit, Rising Cities and Gameglobe amongst its titles.

    It’s a damn shame that it’s come to this and I feel for all of those affected. Union involvement in the industry is an interesting development though, a somewhat inevitable one too given the industries disposition towards treating developers like battery hens.
