While it is bad news, it may be the only way that Kodak is able to bear with the current market demand. Add in the stress from the Chapter 11 filing and I guess it's either some go in an attempt to restructure and organize and put itself back together or the whole company liquidates.
Unfortunately, that's the reality of the modern corporation. :( Hopefully these employees can find some good work elsewhere doing something else!
And remember, some of their number might be hired back. :) People like me have to walk away from the computer and shoot film instead of writing about it. Which I think I'll do right now.

I think the point made about "what division" was valid. We already know that Kodak axed their E6 program, so to see job cuts in that department would not be surprising at all.
Can anyone hum the tune of "Brother, can you spare a dime?" Hard times have hit many industries and jobs continue to dwindle. Very sad.
Or, it could be a division that makes, sensitizes (chemically and spectrallly) and coats.
There have been so many reorganizations there, that I just could not say what comes under the name film sensitizing division.
Plus, the word "FILM" can refer to either just the emulsion or the end product.
1. a thin layer or coating.
2. a thin transparent sheet of cellulose acetate or similar material coated on one or both sides with an emulsion that is sensitive to light or radiation.--- http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/film
