ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. - Employees at IBM are bracing for bad news this week.

Earlier this month, the union group for many IBM employees reported mass layoffs could be coming to the facility Wednesday. The group says nothing happened.

Layoffs are instead expected later this week.

Town leaders say they're used to seeing layoffs at IBM and they're looking toward other businesses to help create jobs in the area.

An IBM spokesperson said the company has no comment on the possibility of layoffs.
