BREAKING NEWS: Boeing to Cut More High Level Jobs in Seattle

By Alwyn Scott | Reuters NEW YORK

Boeing Co (BA.N) warned employees on Monday it planned another round of involuntary layoffs that would affect hundreds of engineers at its commercial airplanes unit, according to a source and a memo seen by Reuters. The additional layoffs are due to start June 23, according to the memo from John Hamilton, vice president of engineering at Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

“We are moving forward with a second phase of involuntary layoffs for some select skills in Washington state and other enterprise locations,” “We anticipate this will impact hundreds of engineering employees. Additional reductions in engineering later this year will be driven by our business environment and the amount of voluntary attrition.”


It was not immediately clear whether workers at Boeing’s Dreamliner factory in South Carolina would be affected.
