The East Kilbride News reports that Freescale is looking into cutting up to 27 more jobs in its research and development division after it announced a worldwide workforce reduction of 10%. This announcement comes after the October 2008 revelation of its Kelvin Industrial plant closing next year with around 800 jobs being lost.

East Kilbride states that the consultation process commenced on last week with the expectance of further job cuts. Freescale released a statement to East Kilbride where their spokeswoman states, “Following last month’s announcement of global headcount reductions across the company, Freescale has entered into a minimum 30-day consultation with employees, “ she continued by stating, “The majority of the positions potentially impacted in the UK are in support functions and it is anticipated that any redundancies would take place between February and September 2009.”
