Union: Layoffs imminent at Spirit AeroSystems

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Union officials are bracing for anticipated layoffs at Spirit AeroSystems, but the company says it is not speculating about what it calls rumors.

Ray Goforth, executive director of the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace, said Wednesday that the union is hearing from various middle managers about the impending layoffs. But he says the company has not told union officials.

A company email shows the human resources department has blocked off 35 rooms from 6:30 a.m. to noon Thursday for the meetings.

Spirit spokesman Ken Evans says the company has no announcement to make at this time.

Goforth says it is a shockingly disrespectful way to treat employees.
