The news brought a swift reaction from the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace (Speea), which represents the engineers and technical workers.
“We find it extremely disappointing that [BCA] is actively outsourcing engineering work to the Moscow Design Center while laying off employees in the [Pacific] Northwest,” says Speea Executive Director Ray Goforth.
A Boeing official says Moscow employment also has declined. He says hiring “in critical areas” across BCA will continue, but he declines to be specific.
Speea says it is working with Boeing managers to try to find new positions within Boeing for those getting pink slips.
