Boeing to cut 8'000 jobs?

US-american Airbus rival Boeing plans to cut up to 8'000 jobs this year at its commercial airplane division.
Unnamed sources told news house Reuters that the company's broad goal is to cut jobs by 10 percent at its commercial airplane unit, which has about 80'000 employees. "There is no employment reduction target," spokesman Doug Alder is cited in the article as saying. "The more we can control costs as a whole, the less impact there will be to employment."

The following is the statement workers union International Association of Machinists District 751 published on its website:

"We have not been notified of these types of reduction numbers. We continue to have concerns about work that has been moved outside of Washington State, which is why we focused so much energy on trying to get job number guarantees for the USD 8.7 billion in aerospace tax incentives that our citizens are paying. This should make it clear to the legislature why it is important to tie guaranteed job numbers to tax incentives like the other states have done. In the meantime, we are not going to spread any rumors by commenting on unconfirmed reports."
