Siemens To Axe 4,500 Jobs Worldwide

Siemens is to axe 4,500 jobs worldwide.

Unite national officer, Linda McCulloch, said: "We need clarity from the Siemens management how this announcement will impact on the nearly 14,000 people that the company employs in the UK.

"While it is saying that 2,200 of the 4,500 jobs under threat will be cut in Germany, it has declined to say where the axe for the other half will fall.

"Unite will be seeking an urgent meeting with Siemens to get assurances on job security for our members in the UK."
