Part of YouTube Music Team Loses Jobs After Fighting for Fair Treatment

Austin, Texas – 43 contract workers, who formed the entire YouTube Music team, were recently informed that their positions were being terminated. This comes after a year of the team advocating for improved pay and benefits.

The team was employed by both Google and its subcontractor, Cognizant. While addressing the Austin City Council in support of his union’s negotiations with Google, YouTube data analyst Jack Benedict received the news of himself and his entire team’s layoff. His shocked reaction on camera quickly gained widespread attention.

Benedict, along with other affected workers, expressed disbelief and anger regarding the sudden job loss. They believe the layoffs could be retaliation for their efforts to form a union and secure better working conditions. Many voiced concerns about the financial strain and potential loss of housing due to the unexpected termination.

Both Google and Cognizant have denied responsibility for the layoffs. Google claims the workers were employed by Cognizant, while Cognizant maintains that the contract “ended naturally.” They offered the impacted workers seven weeks of paid time to seek new opportunities within their company.

This incident comes amidst the team’s year-long campaign for better pay, benefits, and flexible work arrangements. They had voted to unionize last year, but Google refused to negotiate, citing their status as contractors rather than direct employees.

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently ruled Google’s stance illegal and implemented stricter regulations to prevent companies from circumventing unionization efforts involving third-party contractors.
