BAE Systems Cutting Endicott Workforce

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Some workers at the BAE Systems operations in Broome County are losing their jobs.

Employees at the Endicott site learned of the layoffs this morning.

BAE Systems spokeswoman Kristin Gossel told WNBF News the company is making reductions at several locations across the country.

Gossel said 300 positions are being cut from BAE’s 11,000-employee workforce.

Most of the reductions — about 200 — will be made at the company’s sites in southern New Hampshire.

The other 100 jobs will be trimmed at Endicott and at four other sites, including one location on Long Island.

The number of people affected at Endicott and Greenlawn, New York; Wayne, New Jersey; Manassas, Virginia; and Austin, Texas was not released.

The positions involved are spread across various job disciplines and businesses.

Gossel said the impact of the reductions will be primarily felt in the company’s defense business. She noted the Endicott site does a significant amount of commercial work.

Those who will be affected by the planned cuts are to be notified by March 4.

A BAE Systems statement described the move as a “very difficult decision” for the company. It’s viewed as a necessary response to changing staffing requirements and the “overall economy climate.”

The statement said the layoffs should lead to a “stronger, more competitive business” which will meet or exceed customer expectations.
