Boeing has filed a notice with the Alabama Department of Commerce to lay off more than 100 workers at its Huntsville, Alabama location.

According to the WARN List of Made in Alabama, a site that lists Alabama plant closings and layoffs, Boeing plans to lay off 128 workers beginning June 28, 2024. 

In a statement sent to Alabama news outlet WSFA12, Boeing said it had “notified some team members in Huntsville of a potential layoff” and will explore alternative placement opportunities within Boeing for affected employees.

Local media outlet WHNT said Boeing, which employs more than 3,000 people in Huntsville, planned to cut jobs because of delays related to the SLS Artemis mission, with NASA reportedly pushing back its Artemis II and III launches.

According to a Boeing state card, there are 2,357 Boeing retirees in Alabama, and that the company’s charitable contributions to the state amount to $1.7 million.
