Uber will lay off 3,000 more employees starting this week, the company announced Monday, bringing the total layoffs this month to 6,700.

In an email to staff Monday, CEO Dara Khosrowshahi implied that he hopes there are not more layoffs in the company's future, but that he would "not make any claims with absolute certainty."

As Uber embarks on another round of layoffs, CEO Dara Khosrowshahi signaled that the company may be able to avoid more job cuts in the future, but said he can't make any promises.

In a grim email to staff Monday, Khosrowshahi implied that Uber has made it past the worst of its job cuts, but stopped short of promising that there won't be cuts in the future.

In addition to detailing job cuts, the bulk of Khosrowshahi's email expounds on Uber's plan to achieve profitability despite the hit it's taken from COVID-19.
