A trade union that claims to represent hundreds staff at Google has said that some staff at the tech giant’s Irish office are being laid off as part of a newly announced round of global job cuts.

The Financial Services Union (FSU) said it has been notified by members at Google that redundancies are being imposed at the tech giant’s Dublin office, as the company sheds several hundred workers in various divisions around the world.
