The next shoe has dropped for Nike's workforce.
The current reductions, of non-union workers, will take place by Sept. 30.
Nike had revealed in June it will cut 2 percent of its global workforce as it restructures to more quickly get products in the hands of consumers and respond to a rapidly changing consumer landscape.
It's the company's first major downsizing since 2009, when it shed 1,750 jobs worldwide. Nike employs more than 70,000 workers globally.
About 12,000 of the employees are in Washington County, where Nike is undergoing a campus expansion that reportedly has hit the $1 billion cost point.
