August 19, 2000|Associated Press

Boeing Co. confirmed that it will consolidate several operations in the Puget Sound area, affecting the jobs of 3,500 employees around the country over the next three years. The Seattle company said it plans to transfer employees or change their assignments rather than cut personnel. It promised to honor all labor agreements. Boeing spokesman Fred Mitchell said initial estimates show that 25% to 30% of work in the area could be contracted outside the company as a result of the changes.
