Spirit AeroSystems Announces Temporary Layoffs to Become Permanent

Some Spirit AeroSystems production workers who were to be temporarily laid off will receive permanent layoff notices. Spirit said that 'temporary layoffs announced late last year have been transitioned to permanent layoffs'. The permanent layoffs will affect 'a small number of hourly employees' who received temporary layoff notices in December. On Dec. 21, Spirit said it would lay off fewer than 70 production workers in Wichita for a period not expected to last more than 21 days. Spirit said that it would offer transition services to employees who are permanently laid off.

Spirit AeroSystems Plans Temporary Wichita Layoffs

Spirit AeroSystems announced that it will temporarily lay off up to 70 production workers in Wichita, Kansas, at the start of 2016. While the duration of the layoffs remains murky, affected workers still will get benefits. Spirit has roughly 11,000 employees in Wichita. The company says the temporary layoffs come after fewer production workers retired or quit than were projected, and improvement in some production activities have led to a need for fewer workers.
