IBM wants to lay off up to 1,000 employees


According to the Verdi union, Big Blue wants to get rid of around 1,000 employees. For years, IBM has been cutting jobs and restructuring its corporate structure. There is still no official statement from the group on the current case.

In the course of the planned job cuts at the IT group IBM, according to the Verdi union, numerous employees are now threatened with dismissal. Up to 1,000 employees could be affected, said Verdi on Tuesday. The works council bodies had been informed about this. It was said that the plans were “shocked”. “We protest against layoffs and call on IBM not to implement the plans.”

IBM once again did not specifically respond to this. “Our personnel decisions are made in order to provide our customers with the best possible support on their way to the introduction of an open hybrid cloud platform and AI capability,” it said in a statement. “We are also re-investing in our business. We will continue to make significant investments in the education and training of IBM professionals to better serve our customers’ needs.”

According to earlier Verdi information, IBM intends to cut around 2,300 jobs in Germany. A good 1,200 employees would have accepted a cancellation offer from the group. The group has been cutting jobs in Germany for years and is currently undergoing extensive restructuring.
