    Default Union: IBM cuts coming again to New York

    An IBM employees’ union is warning workers to expect more job cuts in Vermont and New York later this month.

    Alliance@IBM, citing unnamed sources inside the company, said the deadline to select the employees to be cut was Jan. 24, and those employees will be notified Feb. 26.

    “This is no surprise to IBM employees,” Lee Conrad, national coordinator of the union, wrote in an email Wednesday to its mailing list, which includes union members, company workers and journalists. “Employees are being pushed out the door in order for executives to reach their goal of $20 earnings per share and greater wealth for them and large stockholders.”

    IBM is the cancer that started most of the outsourcing of jobs.. Back in the 70's and 80's If you got lucky and got hired by Big Blue you had the job of a lifetime.. The economy in the valley was growing and the start-ups of suppliers for IBM were growing.. Everyone was happy.. The came along a CEO that started outsourcing his work.. They would take a job from you,lay you off and then want to hire you back as a contractor at half the pay.. Here in the Hudson Valley there were two large manufacturing plants that have gone to almost ALL contracted help.. Even the warehouse personal now work for a company from Ireland.. Both plants have many empty buildings now as for what wasn't contracted out the work and a lot of it went to India.. personally I would avoid their products like the plague..
