RIM to lay off 2,000 on 1 June, says report

Troubled BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (RIM) is planning a major global restructuring that will include at least 2,000 layoffs worldwide, according to a report.
Canada's Globe and Mail cites "several people close to the company" in reporting the news about the Waterloo, Ontario-based company, which, the Globe and Mail says, has about 16,500 employees globally.
The paper said the layoffs "will sweep across departments, ranging from senior positions in RIM's legal division to human resources, finance, sales, and marketing" and that the pink slips will go out June 1, a day before RIM's first quarter ends — if not earlier.
