IBM Corporation has announced that it is laying off 90 workers at its Essex Junction plant.

The cuts are part of a plan to eliminate 450 jobs, mostly at IBM’s East Fishkill and Poughkeepsie, New York, facilities.

The job cuts were in semiconductor manufacturing and support functions such as packing and testing.

An IBM spokesman says the company, which has 5,700 workers in Essex Junction, is reorganizing its manufacturing and development within the Systems and Technology Group.

Officials say laid off workers will receive a severance package, job counseling services and interim medical benefits.
