Report: summer Sikorsky layoffs possible in Florida
Lockheed Martin could lay off more than 200 Sikorsky Aircraft employees in Jupiter, Fla. who work on Black Hawk helicopters, according to a report by a local TV station.
WPTV cited multiple anonymous employees who said layoffs could be in the offing at a Jupiter facility that employs 500 people, with Lockheed Martin not responding immediately Wednesday to requests for confirmation and any details.
Sikorsky has its main production facility in Stratford, which is also home to the Teamsters Local 1150 labor union that represents workers there and at production sites in Florida and Alabama.
