Delphi cuts 148 IT jobs, sends 20 abroad

Auto parts giant Delphi Corp. recently said it’s cutting 148 IT jobs — and sending 20 of those jobs offshore — as part of a consolidation and restructuring of its IT organization in the U.S.

About 30 of the IT jobs being cut will be outsourced to Mumbai, India-based Tata Group, according to company spokesman Dave Bodkin. Twenty of those jobs will be located in India and Hungary, and 10 will be in the U.S., Bodkin said.

Most of the 148 jobs are in Michigan, but a few are in Indiana, New York and Ohio, he said. The cuts will be made to an IT workforce of 1,000 employees, half of whom are in the U.S.

The job cuts are part of a restructuring that the Troy, Mich.-based automotive parts maker announced in October, when it said it would cut 8,500 jobs — 3,000 positions outside the U.S., 5,000 hourly jobs in the U.S. and 500 salaried jobs in the U.S., Bodkin said. Delphi has a total of 186,000 employees worldwide.

The company on Feb. 24 “told the affected employees that we were going to restructure and consolidate our U.S. IT organization,” said Bodkin. “So we’re hard at work to redeploy the affected employees to other positions.”

Bodkin said Delphi had identified slightly more than 70 open positions within the company for those people to consider. “We held a job fair for them, and we have been approached by some of our vendors who have expressed interest in some of our employees,” he said.
