Shumlin Urges IBM To Go Public With Layoff Numbers
Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin is urging IBM to make public the number of employees it laid off last month at its Vermont facilities.
And the governor says if he and his lawyer conclude the Vermont Public Records Act requires it, his administration will release the number whether IBM wants to or not.
IBM doesn't make layoff numbers public. It reported them to the state, but is telling Vermont officials the number is commercially sensitive and exempt from disclosure under the law.
Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan is asking IBM to explain its position on the law by noon today.
