According to AP: “Airplane maker Boeing Co. says it plans to cut about 800 positions at a facility in Wichita, Kan., next year.
The Chicago-based company says the reductions are a result of some programs ending and a delay in a U.S. Air Force tanker replacement program.
The layoffs will affect managers, as well as salaried and hourly workers.Boeing (BA, Fortune 500) says it will deliver 60-day layoff notices to about 76 employees on Friday. The rest of the layoffs will continue throughout next year.”
