Sony has announced some restructuring measures, including cutting 8,000 of its 185,000 jobs around the world and shuttering five or six plants — about 10 per cent of its 57 factories.
Software giant Microsoft Corp. said Thursday it will eliminate up to 5,000 jobs, including 1,400 this month, to reduce costs.
The global bank and insurer will book a large fourth-quarter loss, cut 7,000 jobs and change its CEO. The company predicts a loss of about $5.2 billion when it posts its earnings on Feb. 18.
General Motors plans to cut 2,000 jobs at plants in Michigan and Ohio, and will halt production for several weeks at nine plants over the next six months, the company said Monday.
Caterpillar Inc. said Monday it will reduce its workforce by about 20,000 after the heavy equipment company announced a quarterly profit decline of 32 per cent.
The bank said Monday that most of its 107 small banking outlets in Safeway, Sobeys, Metro and IGA stores will close in April.
For BMO they say they will move the employees but that is doubtful as they haven't done that for their multiple branch closures.
