New York-based Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY) has unveiled plans to reduce its work force in southwest Indiana.

Both actions are scheduled to occur by the end of this year.
The company announced in August plans to relocate its Evansville operations to Mount Vernon.
At the time, the company said the decision was based on decreased demand for the pharmaceuticals produced in Evansville.
