Boeing to lay off 1,100 employees

The company said it plans to scale down annual production of its C-17 military transport aircraft to 10 per year from the scheduled 13 to be delivered in 2011.

The US-based company said that most of the workforce reductions are expected to impact workers at the programme’s final-assembly site in Long Beach at California, with other job cuts will affect at facilities in Macon, Ga; Mesa, Ariz; and St Louis.

Meanwhile, Boeing, which employs more than 158,000 people worldwide, said it will try to redeploy many of the affected employees to other programs or other Boeing locations where the company has suitable job openings.
