Boston Scientific cutting up to 1,000 jobs

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Boston Scientific announced plans to cut 900 to 1,000 more jobs worldwide in 2013 as part of ongoing restructuring.

It's unclear how many jobs in Minnesota, specifically in Plymouth, will be affected. Boston Scientific employs roughly 4,500 people in the Twin Cities.

"The company anticipates the reduction of 900 to 1,000 positions worldwide through a combination of employee attrition and targeted headcount reductions as a result of the Expansion," Boston Scientific said in its news release. "Plans detailing specific employee impacts will be developed for each affected region and business, and the company will work with employee representative bodies where required under local laws."

Boston Scientific cut 1,400 jobs in 2011 and had a smaller round of layoffs in fall of 2012.
