IBM France to cut 345 more jobs

Friday 15 May 2015 | 08:36 CET | News
IBM France announced that it will cut 345 jobs by October, a few days after the CGT union released the information, AFP reports. All of the jobs, 4.5 percent of the workforce, are being eliminated on a voluntary basis, mainly in the form of early retirement. Two thirds of the affected jobs will be in infrastructure technology services (160 jobs) and support functions (73), according to the UNSA union. IBM had 26,000 employees in France at the end of the 1960s, but there are only 9,000 now. The latest job cuts were in 2013 (689).
