HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — A Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) notice shows Boeing will begin laying off over 100 people in Huntsville at the end of June.

Boeing is a corporation that designs, manufactures, and sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets, satellites, and missiles.

The WARN list notification shows that Boeing will be laying off 128 employees in the state.

Boeing is one of the largest aerospace engineering companies in the state, and its operations are centered in Huntsville. It employs about 3,400 workers in the Rocket City.

Boeing confirmed to News 19 on April 25 that it would be making staffing changes. On Friday, a spokesperson sent the following statement:

“We have notified some team members in Huntsville of a potential layoff, as programs are affected by decisions external to Boeing. We will continue to be transparent with team members and explore alternative placement opportunities within Boeing for impacted employees,” a Boeing spokesperson told News 19.

This news comes just over one week after reports that The Space Launch System — SLS — program in Huntsville is facing slowdowns after NASA pushed back its Artemis II and III launches.

Launch delays are impacting work rates for contractors on the project, including Boeing. A spokesperson for the company also confirmed that SLS is one of the programs affected by the potential layoff, but other programs and functions might also be affected.

The WARN Act helps to ensure companies give advanced notice “in cases of qualified plant closings and mass layoffs,” the U.S. Department of Labor says.
