Avaya Inc.’s plans to cut 3,000 employees as part of a continued restructuring plan that began when it was spun off from Lucent Technologies Inc. last year will not have any immediate impact on the company’s Canadian operations say company officials.

The Basking Ridge, N.J.-company hopes most of the job eliminations come from employees taking voluntary retirement, said Lynn Newman with Avaya’s media relations in Basking Ridge.

“The program announced is targeted at U.S. employees only,” Newman said in an interview with IT World Canada. “At this point I couldn’t tell you there’d be any impact in Canada.”
