    Layoffs continue at Dell
    Ottawa
    Canada Dell has laid off an undisclosed number of sales staff from its
    Ottawa office this week, as part of the nearly 1,100 pink slips
    originally announced by the U.S.-based computer giant in late
    April.Dell representative Blair Patacairk told the OBJ “a few” sales
    staff members were laid off this week, but could not provide exact
    numbers. But he said that number is in addition to 20 to 30 call centre
    employees also to be laid off this week as per Dell’s original
    announcement nearly two months ago, in which more than one thousand
    jobs were to be cut in two separate rounds of layoffs.Mr. Patacairk
    said that while the bulk of the second round will occur the week of
    June 27 – in which around 400 to 500 staff will be let go – he also
    said some jobs would stay in Ottawa until August or even early
    September. “And that’s because of the business unit that they’re in,
    and how they’re being integrated into our world network,” he
    explained.”Although the bulk of the people are slated to go at the end
    of June, there will be some people leaving at the end of this week,” he
    said.”There are some units that are going to go a little earlier, and
    some that are going to go a little later than we expected.”
