Boeing plans to lay off 128 workers in Huntsville, according to a state notice filed this week.

The layoffs are planned to begin on June 28, according to the notice Boeing filed with the Alabama Department of Commerce.

“We have notified some team members in Huntsville of a potential layoff, as programs are affected by decisions external to Boeing,” a Boeing spokesperson said in a statement to AL.com today. “We will continue to be transparent with team members and explore alternative placement opportunities within Boeing for impacted employees.”

Boeing did not provide additional details about the planned layoffs.

The aviation company is a contractor for NASA’s Space Launch System. WHNT News-19 reported last week that Boeing, which employs 3,400 people in Huntsville, planned to cut jobs because of delays for the SLS Artemis mission.

NASA did not respond to a request for comment from AL.com by time of publication.

Federal law requires major employers to notify the state of planned layoffs or closures.
