The American IT giant IBM plans to cut from 1,180 to 1,385 jobs, or about a quarter of the workforce in France, as part of a global restructuring, we learned on Wednesday November 25 from union sources .
This social plan of unequaled scope, announced in early November by the European committee without precise figures for France, is a “Mixed PSE (job protection plan), which must be officially presented to the trade unions on December 16, with a voluntary departure plan but also probably layoffs if there are not enough volunteers”, explained to AFP Pierry Poquet, central union delegate Unsa (first union).
A major restructuring plan
The CFE-CGC (2nd union), which confirms this information, called on Wednesday in a press release the new president of IBM France, Béatrice Kosowsky, in order to “Ask for guarantees in the face of the scale of restructuring”.
