The engineering group Siemens has announced a new round of job cuts in its industry division, which employs more than 100,000 people globally. In a presentation the company said 500 jobs would be cut at its Munich headquarters; while a further 500 positions would be lost by reducing the German mechanics factories from four to two. The total workforce will be reduced by 3,000 workers. Meanwhile the protest has started against a planned outsourcing at the Munich IT-plants with more jobs at risk.
