Boeing just announced that it will let go of “hundreds of engineering employees” in Washington state and further company locations this coming Friday.
“We are moving forward with a second phase of involuntary layoffs for some select skills in Washington State and other enterprise locations. We need to reduce our employment levels further,” John Hamilton, vice president of engineering at Boeing Commercial Airplanes told reports. “We anticipate 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.”
Boeing professedly offered a series of intended acquisitions in January, an offer that was acknowledged by above 300 engineering and technical employees and 1,500 associates of the Machinists team.
Reports claim that all the engineering workers who took the pitch will permanently depart from Boeing Friday, alongside a number of the machinists.
Also according to reports, the aviation company released a primary series of layoffs in March causing in 245 spontaneous layoffs, counting 62 engineering workforces and 111 machinists, happening in mid-May.
Boeing has ended more than 9,000 workforces over the past year, primarily done over acquisitions and sequestrations. The Chicago-based Corporation presently has 74,200 staff workers and reported $95 billion in revenue last year.
US President Donald Trump aggressively critiqued Boeing throughout his shift period over the price of its auxiliary Air Force One package, exclaiming the value of two novel 747s “out of control.” The president has subsequently proclaimed that he aided on the pull down of the plan’s prices after meeting with Boeing’s CEO prior this year.
The further layoffs are due to begin June 23, as stated in the memo from Hamilton.
In the same statement, Boeing said that the additional employment cuts would consist of administrators and executives and be completed through a mixture of abrasion, voluntary layoffs and in certain circumstances involuntary layoffs.
"In an ongoing effort to increase overall competitiveness and invest in our future, we are reducing costs and matching employment levels to business and market requirements," the statement said. It was not immediately clear whether workers at Boeing's Dreamliner factory in South Carolina would be affected.
