Bob Stangarone, vice president of communications with Cessna, says the layoffs will be companywide and affect all pay categories.

The number of layoffs will be announced next month, following the first-quarter report from Cessna’s parent company, Textron Inc., which Stangarone says is expected April 29. The company has already laid off 4,600 workers.

In addition, the company announced a companywide shutdown from July 6 to July 17.
