CEO Dave Calhoun
"And now we have come to the unfortunate moment of having to start involuntary layoffs (ILO). We’re notifying the first 6,770 of our U.S. team members this week that they will be affected.
"We will provide all the support we can to those of you impacted by the ILOs including severance pay, COBRA health care coverage for U.S. employees and career transition services.
"Our international locations also are working through workforce reductions that will be communicated locally on their own timelines in accordance with local laws and benefit terms.
"I wish there were some other way.
"For those of you who are notified, I want to offer my personal gratitude for the contributions you have made to Boeing, and I wish you and your families the very best. For more, please see this video message." ■
