Leaked documents show IBM has laid off more than 9,000

Layoffs at IBM total more than 9,000 for the year. According to leaked copies of the company’s internal “resource action” packages, total verifiable layoffs through Aug. 24 number 9,298.

The company has acknowledged some layoffs, but has steadfastly refused to give details, such as numbers or locations.

Alliance@IBM national coordinator Lee Conrad said additional job cuts – some too small to warrant R.A. packages, some involving contractors – most likely “push the total above 10,000.”

The company appears to be on track to lay off 16,000 North American employees by year’s end – a number that first leaked in early January.
