Workers at Boeing’s plant in North Charleston, South Carolina, have not been affected by the layoffs announced Friday by the aerospace giant, reports the Charleston Post & Courier’s David Wren.
The company has cut its South Carolina employees by about 8.4 percent since a high point last year. It now employs about 7,570 people in the Palmetto State.
Boeing is offering buyouts to South Carolina workers, however. At least 1,800 workers in Puget Sound took buyouts earlier this year.
The company offered a new round of buyouts to some employees on Thursday. More layoffs are expected next month, according to union officials.
