TTAC Called It: Delphi "Involuntarily Separates" 600 Employees by 2009
Our Wild Ass Rumor was three days early, but accurate. Our source inside the former GM division and bankrupt autoparts maker reports that the company has told its workers that 600 white collar Delphinians– in the Electronics and Safety organization– will be shown the door by the end of the year. (The total number employed thereabouts is 3k.) Delphi will identify the 600 puntees by the end of this month [August]. And despite previous promises, the pension freeze is now "independent of bankruptcy emergence." And when might THAT be? Our source says there were "no warm fuzzies on when we could expect to emerge." The Delphi wound continues to fester, only more so.
