Boeing says nearly 3,000 employees support C-17 production in Long Beach; Macon, Ga.; Mesa, Ariz., and St. Louis, and workforce reductions will begin early next year.
The company says it expects the announcement to result in a charge of less than $100 million this quarter, and that will not impact financial guidance for the year.
Last week, the Long Beach plant delivered the last of 223 C-17s produced for the U.S. Air Force. The remaining aircraft to be built are for overseas customers.
