Last month Intel announced that it would be reducing its global workforce by 12,000.
The company announced that it would be cutting its 100,000-strong workforce around the world by 12,000, as it adapts to the shift in the market away from PCs.
The news meant that there was certainly going to be a shake up here in Ireland and last week 5,500 staff here were sent an email that its Irish operations will be impacted by the job reductions.
Staff here are set to begin being informed of job cuts this evening.
Intel currently employs 4,500 people at its manufacturing campus in Leixlip, with the remainder spread across its security business in Cork and its research and development labs in Shannon.
