IBM’s not-so-secret layoffs may have reached 4,200, according to Alliance@IBM, which believes that thousands of other employees will be losing their jobs as well before the cuts end.

According to Lee Conrad, a former IBM employee who is now the national coordinator of Alliance@IBM, about 1,200 employees who work in IBM’s systems technology group at sites around the country have been laid off, and about 200 in the research division were let go as well. These reports bring the total layoff count at IBM to about 4,200.
