Sun notifies 1,300 people of layoffs

Sun Microsystems Inc. officials confirmed Thursday that the networking and storage company has notified 1,300 employees they would be laid off as part of a previously announced workforce reduction.

The reductions stem from a Nov. 14 announcement of “a series of changes designed to align (Sun’s) cost model with the global economy and accelerate the introduction of compelling open source innovations,” spokeswoman Dana Lengkeek said in an e-mail Thursday.

The reductions were made across “all levels,” including vice presidents and directors, she said.
