Germany -Siemens plans giant job cuts -October 02, 2013

Siemens is to shed 15,000 jobs over the next year, a third of them in Germany, as part of a 6 billion euro cost cutting program. Siemens and the trade unions have negotiated an agreement over about half of the job cuts and a deal on the other half will follow, according to a company spokesman. No workers have been laid off so far and Siemens has said it does not intend to make enforced redundancies, relying instead on attrition and voluntary severance deals. In Germany, about 2,000 jobs will be cut at the company's industrial unit and another 1,400 at its energy and infrastructure business.
