IBM Announcements Minimal Layoffs
(Host) IBM's Global Services unit in Essex Junction will see a layoff of fewer than ten employees. But company officials say they are not the much-anticipated layoffs that Vermont officials fear could see hundreds of people losing their jobs.
IBM spokesman Jeff Couture didn't have a precise number of people who would be losing their jobs, but he says it's in the single digits. Couture says the Global Services layoffs are company-wide.
