Reports: Layoffs Coming In IBM Services
The Wall Street Journal
While a spokesman acknowledged in January that IBM was "reallocating our skills and resources," the company has largely been silent about the scope of its workforce reductions. An IBM spokesman declined to comment Wednesday on reports of the latest layoffs.
The reports indicate that some of the service work performed by the laid-off employees would be shifted to IBM employees in India.
A posting on the Alliance@IBM Web site indicate that cuts will be made Thursday at IBM Global Technology Services operations in Hartford, Conn., and Boulder, Colo. Alliance@IBM is a Web site operated by the Communications Workers of America union that has long tried to organize IBM employees.
