IBM cuts hundreds of jobs, sliver of 400K workers
IBM Corp. has cut hundreds of jobs across a number of divisions. The cuts Monday represent a sliver of the technology company's nearly 400,000 workers worldwide.
IBM wouldn't comment. Documents submitted by laid-off workers to the Alliance(at)IBM, a labor union at IBM, indicate that at least 856 jobs were cut. It's not known where the positions were located.
IBM, which is based in Armonk, N.Y., generally doesn't release details of its job cuts. The company's overall head count has grown over the last few years despite ongoing job cuts.
