In an effort to steer the deeply troubled company back to profits, the CEO today announced jobs cuts as high as 3000 salaried workers over the next five years, job cuts of blue collar workers and reduced health benefits for pensioners.

Is the above correct?
Thanks.

Hi,

I would move the phrase 'over the next five years' to somewhere where it could make more sense of it being there, but I am not too sure of it being the kind of sentence you wanted to write.

Why is the original location of the phrase wrong? Moving it to the end changes the meaning. It would mean all of the measures will take place over the next five years.

Are you sure?
