As Many As 1,000 Could Be Affected
An internal memo
distributed to Boeing employees on Monday indicated that defense
cuts will cost about 1,000 people their jobs with the company, but
it has not been determined exactly where the cuts will be made.
The memo, which came from Jim Albaugh, the head of Boeing's
Integrated Defense Systems division, said the job reductions are
needed "to keep ourselves competitive."
The Assiciated Press reports Boeing CEO Jim McNerney predicted
in January that the company would have to cut 10,000 employees this
year through attrition and layoffs. 4,500 of those were scheduled
to come from the Commercial Airplanes Unit, but Boeing Spokesman
Dan Beck would not say if these most recently-announced cuts were
part of that overall plan.
Boeing employs nearly 70,000 people in defense systems company
wide. They produce military aircraft as well as weapons systems,
surveillance, and intelligence systems.
