Australian AMD staff survive global cutbacks
Australian AMD employees have survived the chopping block as the company sacks 375 staff after acquiring graphics chip maker ATI Technologies.
The sackings are going ahead despite the company beating estimated financial earnings for this year. AMD reported third-quarter profits of $US134 million in October, 2006.
A local AMD spokesperson yesterday confirmed Australian staff numbers will remain the same with employees unaffected by the layoffs.
When asked about future staff retention plans in Australia, the spokesperson was unable to elaborate claiming Thanksgiving celebrations in the US prevented the company from getting more information from the US.
