Siemens has said it will cut 1600 jobs, or 11 per cent, from its business services department, bringing the total planned cuts revealed this year to almost 10,000.
The jobs will go at the firm's Munich and Paderborn sites as Siemens combines its business services and technology divisions.
However, the firm has not yet cleared the measure with its employee council, which it is obliged to do before it can make the cuts. It is far more difficult for companies to lay off staff in Germany than in other European countries, such as the UK.
The job losses are in addition to the 8100, or 1.7 per cent of its total workforce, which Siemens has already announced, according to a Bloomberg report.
