Boeing is shifting hundreds of jobs in Washington state and California to Alabama, Missouri and South Carolina as it restructures its research and technology operations.
Research jobs are declining by 800-1,200 in Washington and by 200-300 in California.The company is adding 300-400 employees each in Alabama, Missouri and South Carolina
The announcement comes as those same states, and several others, compete to assemble Boeing’s 777X passenger plane.
Boeing spokesman Daryl Stephenson says the restructuring of research operations is unrelated to the new airplane and was in the works long beforehand.
