Saturday, Feb 07, 2009, Page 10
FedEx began winding down its Asian hub in the Philippines and shedding 800 staff yesterday as the US courier giant started full operation of a new regional facility in China, an official said.
Arman Areza, administrator of the Subic Bay economic and tourism zone where FedEx has been based for nearly 14 years, said the company would for now keep a skeleton operation in Subic as a back up to the US$150 million hub in Guangzhou, China
The closure of FedEx’s operation comes in the wake of an announcement by Intel Corp last month that it will let go 1,800 workers later this year when the company shuts down its 35-year-old operation in the Philippines amid waning global demand for computers.

IBM offers to shift laid-off workers to lower-wage countries

Published: February 6, 2009

Some of the workers being let go by IBM have a chance to remain with the company - if they're willing to move to Brazil, India, China or a dozen other low-wage countries. But the expatriate employees likely would be paid local wages as they begin their new lives overseas.

IBM, which is cutting thousands of employees in a move that it has refrained from describing as a layoff, is offering affected workers what it calls Project Match. The employees who can take advantage of the offer include those who have been "notified of separation from IBM US or Canada" and "are willing to work on local terms and conditions," the company said.
" IBM hasn't disclosed the number of employees being let go, but Alliance@IBM, a labor union that is trying to organize IBM workers, has counted about 4,800 job cuts over the past two weeks, based on reports from employees who said they were let go. The union expects more cuts to occur as well.
