SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Another 60 jobs cuts are planned at Boeing's Commercial Airplanes facility near Salt Lake International Airport in June.

Affected employees will receive official notices on April 18.

The layoffs will effect June 20.

The company announced last month that it would eliminate 80 jobs at the plant, which produces spare parts for airliners.

Both rounds of layoffs stem from a restructuring plan approved in November to gradually eliminate 5,000 jobs from the company's Commercial Airplanes segment.

Steven Hendrickson, Boeing director of communication, said the 140 total job cuts will affect management and production workers across the board and will leave 250 employed at the facility.

No more layoffs are currently scheduled at the Salt Lake facility, but it is a possibility, Hendrickson said.

"We'd like to say there won't be anymore, but things can change if our outlook doesn't improve," he said.
