Boeing to cut workforce by 250 workers
America based aircraft manufacturer Boeing have announced that they are going to layoff around 250 workers at their Wichita operations. One of the reasons behind this layoff is the delays caused by the strikes by the workers at the plant. These job cuts would include cuts at the Integrated Defense Systems unit.
Derek McLuckey, general manager of the site attributes this decision on the delays in major programs due to the work stoppage by the workers going on strike. The company suffered massively due to a four-week strike that shut down the company’s commercial airplane assembly plants and slowed work at its Wichita defense facility.
These latest round of layoffs also include the previously announced reductions in its Shared Services Group and Information Technology operations. These cuts were announced to consolidate enterprise services and the sale of its commercial airplanes operations in Kansas and Oklahoma.
Boeing has also said that they expect the conditions to remain stable even after job cuts as they might recall these people when the business picks up and more people are required for the job.
