Cessna Details New Cutbacks on Piston Line

Cessna has announced it will follow up on a production cutback on its Citation jet line for this year with further slowdowns on its piston aircraft output. According to the company, the resulting "work force adjustment" is not expected to exceed 500, including job losses associated with an announcement made last June. In addition, Cessna has changed to an hourly format for addressing mandatory three-week furloughs for some employees. The new strategy allows workers to adjust their required furlough time by the hour rather than by the week, allowing more flexibility in planning.
