Nortel cuts 220 UK staff

Alex Scroxton
Nortel has today cut 11% of its British workforce, or 220 jobs, with 87 redundancies at its Northern Ireland facility, MicroScope has learned.
The cuts were announced as part of the global restructuring effort currently underway at beleaguered Nortel, which employs 2,000 heads in the UK at five offices in Bracknell, Harlow, London, Maidenhead and Monkstown in County Antrim.
The Monkstown unit serves as the hub of Nortel's EMEA supply chain operation, and was formerly owned by cabling and telephony supplier STC, which Nortel bought in the 1990s.
Nortel declined to comment further.
