Boeing To Reassign Up To 3,000 Workers As 737 MAX Production Shuts Down

(RTTNews) - Boeing Co. (BA) said it plans to reassign up to 3,000 workers that support the production of 737 MAX jet. It also plans to halt production of the grounded best-selling 737 MAX jet in mid-January.

However, the Chicago-based planemaker doesn't expect to lay off or furlough workers because of the production suspension.

Mean while, Boeing biggest supplier Spirit AeroSystems Holdings Inc. announced plans for voluntary layoffs ahead of its own planned production halt.

Boeing said in an email sent to employees that select employees from the Puget Sound area will be loaned to the 767 and 777/777X in Everett, Washington, and Propulsion South Carolina employees will support the 787 Program at Boeing South Carolina. Other team members from Renton will staff MAX airplane storage locations in Moses Lake, Washington, and the newly added Victorville, California, site.

Boeing said it is unclear when production of the 737 MAX would resume.
