Sources close to Compaq France told The Register late today that it was still attempting to solve its redundancy situation in the country. Last week, we reported that 1,400 Compaq-DEC jobs could be on the line as part of a widespread restructuring across Europe. (Story: Now France gets Santa Pfeiffer treatment) But a representative said: "Right now, this is purely rumour. Compaq has been working with the works council in France as well as in Germany." She said a formal announcement was likely to arrive by the end of this week. "The job cuts have not been announced yet," she said. She confirmed there were negotiations in Germany too. Compaq has several PR companies operating in the European sphere. ®
