AXE FALLS AT UNIX SYSTEMS GROUP: 20 FULL-TIMERS, 80 CONTRACT STAFF MUST GO

By CBR Staff Writer

Despite rumours of a bloodletting over at Novell Inc’s Unix Systems Group last week, in the end it turned out that fewer than 20 permanent employees were let go, plus perhaps as many as 80 contract players whose projects were winding down anyway. Everything was reportedly very civilised and genteel. Those employees that have a right to go back to AT&T Co (provided AT&T can accommodate them) will supposedly be taken back and AT&T will put its huge resources at the disposal of the rest to find them new jobs. AT&T has a tracking system and old boys’ network that can tap into old employees at new non-AT&T companies to find out what’s going on and what conditions are. Redundancy terms are also said to be generous. Sources say that it is a company-wide adjustment for Novell.
