Unions putting pressure on IBM to re-think job cuts
Unions are picketing IBM's headquarters in Armonk in an attempt to get the company to curtail - or even abandon - its workforce downsizing plans. For now, though, "there have been no signs Big Blue is about to blink," according to the Poughkeepsie Journal. Union pressure in New York is having less of an impact than one might suppose because most of the job cuts are planned for Europe; thus, most of the efforts within the U.S. are aimed at showing solidarity with their European co-workers.
