BAE Systems: a further 640 UK jobs to go

UK-based defense company BAE Systems is to start consultation regarding 642 potential job losses across eight of its UK sites.
This follows a detailed review of the current and future workload requirements for its Integrated System Technologies (Insyte) business, which produces surveillance and command systems. The potential impact of the job losses is shown below.



Managing Director for BAE Systems Insyte, Rory Fisher said: "We have a responsibility to address a reduction in our forecast workload and manage our cost base to remain competitive and meet our customers' future requirements. We will work with our employees and their representatives to explore ways of mitigating these potential job losses and we will ensure employees are fully supported throughout this process."

In April the company already stated that they would lay off around 500 at their combat vehicles and weapons division; in September BAE Systems announced the 1115 layoffs in its military aircraft unit.
