Boeing lays off another 300 workers

Boeing has issued another 300 layoff notices companywide, according to a report in the Seattle Times.

A third of the cuts will be to workers in the company’s Commercial Airplanes division in Puget Sound, Wash. Boeing has been cutting jobs every month since its announcement in January that it plans to reduce employment this year by 10,000 with about 4,500 of those cuts coming in Commercial Airplanes.

Spokesman Tim Healy says Boeing has cut the work force by 1,900 positions since November and left another 1,000 positions unfilled.

At the end of April, Boeing had 159,161employees company-wide and 65,972 in Washington.
