Boeing issues 1,100 layoff notices

About 700 Boeing workers in the Puget Sound area are set to receive 60-day layoff notices Friday morning as part of Boeing’s plan to reduce its commercial work force in the region by about 4,500 jobs this year. They are among 1,100 employees that will get the notices Friday, the company said.

Boeing has said it expects to reduce employment companywide by about 10,000 positions this year through layoffs, attrition and by not filling open positions. It will also cut back on contract labor.
