Panasonic (PC) is preparing to slash its labourforce by approximately 40,000 towards the end of fiscal year 2012, Japan’s Nikkei reports. The reductions, part of attempts to improve overlapping operations at Panasonic Electric Works and Sanyo Electric, will come mostly via personnel cuts abroad. A voluntary early retirement program is going to be offered to workers through fiscal 2012.
