Another Boeing’s cutting of jobs
In April, Boeing recorded zero orders. It was already the second month without orders after customers cancelled another 108 orders for its 737 MAX planes. According to these numbers it is for the company its worst start to a year since 1962.
Boeing Co is expected to extend their job cuttings in the U.S. this week after disclosing last month it planned to shed 10% of its worldwide workforce of 160,000 employees.
A spokesman for the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace (SPEEA) union which represents 17,600 Boeing employees told that company informed the union to expect layoff notices on Friday.
In April, CEO of Boeing Dave Calhoun said the company had “begun taking action to lower our number of employees by roughly 10% through a combination of voluntary layoffs, natural turnover and involuntary layoffs as necessary.”
Calhoun in his speech also added, that “even deeper reductions in areas that are most exposed to the condition of our commercial customers — more than 15% across our commercial aeroplanes and services businesses, as well as our corporate functions.”
