Ericsson Trims 500 Jobs
In Germany, Ericsson said it will reduce the 2,400 workforce by between 350 and 400, most of which will be engineering and "white-collar" positions.
In the U.K., the vendor wants to merge its former Marconi Corp. plc factory in Beeston with one in Coventry. "About 320 employees will be affected, but at least 168 will be offered jobs in Coventry," says an Ericsson spokeswoman. (See Ericsson Buys Bulk of Marconi and Ericsson/Marconi: The Fallout.)
All in all, that amounts to about 500 job cuts.
