WICHITA, Kansas — Cessna on Monday announced that 180 bargained employees will be eligible for early retirement.
The company says that the announcement is an effort to align the company’s workforce with the 2013 revised production forecast.
“The expertise and commitment of Cessna’s workforce is unparalleled and any action we take that impacts our team, particularly reductions, is not taken lightly,” said Jim Walters, senior vice president, Human Resources. “We predict our actions now, coupled with the voluntary separation program announced for indirect employees last month, will result in the majority of adjustments to the workforce coming through voluntary means.”
Cessna has 8,200 employees worldwide with 5,800 here in Wichita.
The company says all job listings on Cessna Careers are still active.
