Fallout from Boeing 737 MAX spreads

The Associated Press - January 24, 2020 12:50 pm

WICHITA, Kansas — Layoffs at Spirit AeroSystems have spread to the airplane parts-maker’s plants in Oklahoma amid the widening fallout in its home state of Kansas caused by the halt in production of the troubled Boeing 737 MAX.

Spirit filed notice with the state of Oklahoma on Thursday that it plans to lay off about 130 employees at its plant in McAlester. The company says there will also be unspecified layoffs at its Tulsa.

The announcement comes two weeks after Spirit said it would lay off 2,800 workers in Wichita, where it is based.
