Scots escape job cuts at General Electric

General Electric’s 5,000 Scotland-based employees will not be affected by plans to cut about 600 UK jobs, the US firm said yesterday. The redundancies at General Electric (GE) form part of the industrial giant’s wider plans to lay off 6,500 staff members in Europe, where it employs 100,000 people. Most of the 600 UK job losses are expected to take place at GE’s sites in Rugby and Stafford in England, a spokesman for GE said yesterday.
