If this really happens, it will be devastating for Ridley Park. the Army says it is canceling its commitment to upgrade hundreds of Chinook 47 helicopters, threatening layoffs for many of the 4,600 mechanics and other staff at Boeing’s Ridley Park... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Boeing Co.
Great job and excellent engineering Boeing. Let's review. 737 max engines are heavier which changed the aerodynamics. That gave it a nose up attitude on takeoff. Awesome change. Who wouldn't want a plane that drives nose up on takeoff under full... read more
Of course Boeing will do anything to eliminate costs in airplane production! Boeing is more and more focused everyday on eliminating anything that can make profits increase. Eliminate job tasks employees do in their everyday jobs, eliminate quality... read more
Who else is worried that the second 737 crash will result in more layoffs at Boeing? I don't remember the last time I was this nervous, waiting to see what was going to happen.
We were told today that 400 QA jobs will be affected next year (2019) and another 400 the year after that due to a “QA Transformation Plan”. They plan to remove QA inspections, and put it all on the mechanics. Not real sure how the FAA bought into... read more
Things will be better
Have you heard anything about potential Boeing Layoffs in 2019?
I read somewhere Boeing's suppliers were delaying deliveries and that the line would slow down. Are there layoffs associated with that? I'd be stupid because you won't get those people back when it picks back up again. Asking for a friend.
It's been quiet here lately. Either y'all have been laid off or Boeing is not such a bad place to work after all.
Boeing (BAC) Everett announced layoffs coming via internal memo to managers. The memo stated they will be laying off contractors until November. This is the typical, cyclic layoff period around the holidays regardless of how late one came in to the... read more
The tale of two factories: https://psmag.com/economics/a-tale-of-two-boeing-factories
Would it not have been nice if Boeing would of paid the taxes on our AMPS since they did get such a huge tax cut. Keep some of the money in house instead of rubbing it on our faces and and even trying to let us decide where they should spend it... read more
If Boeing has a major problem today, it's favoritism. Promotions at the factory are still based on who you are friends with, which translates into a very long wait just to be able to get a step ahead. It doesn’t matter if you are a hard worker or how... read more
I really wish Boeing would have it’s Upper Management get their act together. Decision making processes are all over the place. They keep changing their minds all the time, which ends up causing anxiety in the workplace for the rest of us. It becomes... read more
There is a so much bureaucracy in Boeing. I know some of it comes with the territory of being a large corporation, but this is too much even for that. The company gives us many different career paths and opportunities, however, in order to reach them... read more

Interesting Missouri (St. Louis) BDS / GS&S employment numbers January 2017 were at 14,064 then dropped to 13,901 in April 2017 then rose to 14,062 in June 2017 (probably shifted from So Cal?) then fell again to 13,918 by Sept 2017 for a net loss of... read more
Lockheed, Boeing, Northrop and perhaps the other big aero-defense companies have been playing this game for a long time where the ongoing layoffs are continuous throughout the year but the numbers laid off at any given time is always kept below the... read more
If I tell you that I am concerned you'll laugh - but how can you ignore so many warning signs here in Chicago.
About 30 people let go - the last day will be December 1st 2017 (or somewhere there). I lost count now, it's a non-stop layoff machine that's churning pink slips.
Just in case you need details, on layoffs, you can find it here: www.boeing.com/assets/pdf/companyoffices/empinfo/benefits/health...
Do you know what this article covers - it's behind a paywall and I cannot see it. Please let me know. https://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/news/2017/08/25/boeing-more-seattle-area-layoffs-paul-ryan-visit.html
This year seems to be really layoffs heavy for Boeing. 74 more people will be let go, in addition to at least another thousand nationwide since the start of the year (if my calculations are correct.) Hopefully, this trend will soon come to a full... read more
Boeing offering voluntary layoffs now in North Charleston (who voted down union representation recently). Does anyone know if in-voluntary layoffs or RIFs will follow like the Sept ones in Seattle? Rumor in the St. Louis IT Center of Excellence was... read more

Hmmmm Boeing stock price at all time high but revenue is down with BCA margins actually in double digits 10% and BDS actually with 13% something margin plus major stock buy backs.Of course stating the factories and offices are much more efficient... read more
Any word if Boeing St. Louis BDS, SSG, and IT / Engineering are still doing or going to start doing many small to medium layoffs so the don't have to report a WARN to Missouri like they have done the past few years? There is a federal law requiring... read more
Here we go again, Boeing layoff culture on the move. Boeing seems obsessed with two things – GE and layoffs, how many times does Boeing have to be burned by fools from GE? Boeing is doing blanket layoffs based on Level, from level 4 to 6 and K&L... read more
Boeing capitalized on the backs of new hires, they scared them! Boeing used this to gain heavily well into the future, the unions acted soft and dint see this coming, they passively went along with what Boeing demanded, contract negotiating behind... read more
It is not a solution, but it is something, at least for affected Seattle - King County employees. U.S. Labor Department is providing the funds necessary to retrain workers who were laid off by Boeing, and will also used some of it to help them find... read more
I don't want to be Mr. Negativity here, but that 3x growth is not just revenue, it is a profit goal as well. Let's look at how Boeing has met it's goals in the past. Oh yeah, they do VLOs and ILOs to reduce costs and meet profits expectations. Good... read more
What BCA is doing is systematically dismantling their entire QA program...all for the sole purpose of cutting costs.!!! Senior leadership believes that "Self Inspection" and "Statistical Analysis" of defects will eliminate the value & "excessive... read more

Anyone know what site will lose the most? BDS St. Louis, Philly, Mesa, OKC, San Antonio, Huntsville? Anyone know if that means the SSG and IT overhead will have RIFs too at those sites due to less customers? CNBC... read more

I received my layoff notice on April 21, 2017. They are going after us 50 & 60 somethings. I don't see them going after the 20 & 30 somethings! Isn't this discrimination? I need a lawyer here!
Are St. Louis, MO white collar layoffs coming given the possible 7 office consolidation? Any rumors? http://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/news/2017/04/26/boeing-to-consolidate-st-louis-campus.html
