IBM is definitely the largest employer in Vermont. I think when I moved here in 1999 they had something like 8000 or 9000 employees.
This news just appeared on the Burlington Free Press website:
IBM announced job cuts today at its Essex Junction facility. A total of 90 workers were notified starting this morning that their jobs will end.
The action is part of 450 job cuts, most of them at IBM’s East Fishkill, N.Y. and Poughkeepsie, N.Y., facilities.
IBM employs 5,700 at Essex Junction. The cuts are related to a reorganization of manufacturing and development within the Systems and Technology Group, which includes Essex Junction, said Glen Thomas, company spokesman at IBM’s offices in Somers, N.Y.
