Aircraft maker Boeing will start outsourcing a substantial amount of its information technology work to Dell Technologies. This is expected to eliminate 600 jobs at Boeing (around 10% of its workforce) - according to a message that Susan Doniz, Boeing's vice president for IT and data analytics, sent to employees, according to the Seattle Times.
Last year, Boeing eliminated 20,000 jobs, and said it has plans to retrench another 11,000 this year.
The company did not specify the locations where most of the layoffs would be initiated. But the Seattle Times indicated the largest layoffs could be at major Boeing offices in the Puget Sound region, St. Louis and Charleston, S.C.
