Boeing To Sack 900 Employees

Tue Apr 18, 2006 5:10 pm

Boeing Co. said on Monday it planned to lay off 900 more employees from its operations in Wichita, Kansas, citing defense budget cuts, delays in some contracts and the completion of others.

The top U.S. planemaker said the cuts, which will result in part from the completion of a contract to install new engines for U.S. Air Force refueling tankers, will initially affect 360 workers, mostly salaried and management support employees within its defense unit.
