Boeing to restart limited local work on jets

SEATTLE (AP) — Boeing has told employees it will begin “a safe and orderly restart of limited operations” at a few of its Washington state sites as early as Monday. The Seattle Times reports out of about 30,000 employees idled by the shutdown, Boeing will recall about 2,500 employees for this resumption of work. The company said it will provide the workers with personal protective equipment and enforce social distancing measures. The news comes just five days after Boeing announced that its shutdown in the local plants to contain the spread of COVID-19 would be extended indefinitely. Those called back will be deployed at company defense programs.
