staff have voted to organize under the banner of the Ver.di
trade union, according to GamesIndustry.biz
. The move comes after the October layoffs
of 80 employees from the free-to-play browser giant's Hamburg, Germany office, and Bigpoint will no longer be able to make staffing cuts "without first consulting the organization."
Bigpoint also issued a press release this week stating that 300 million users have registered across its 65-game portfolio.
