Boeing to temporarily suspend 787 operations at its Boeing South Carolina plant

Posted 8 April 2020 · Add Comment

Boeing will temporarily suspend all 787 operations at its Boeing South Carolina (BSC) until further notice, starting at the end of Wednesday, April 8.

“It is our commitment to focus on the health and safety of our teammates while assessing the spread of the virus across the state, its impact on the reliability of our global supply chain and that ripple effect on the 787 programme,” said Brad Zaback, vice president and general manager of the 787 Programme and BSC site leader. “We are working in alignment with state and local government officials and public health officials to take actions that best protect our people.

“BSC teammates who can work remotely will continue to do so. Those who cannot work remotely will receive paid leave for 10 working days of the suspension, which is double the company policy. After 10 days, teammates will have the option to use a combination of available paid time off benefits or file for emergency state unemployment benefits. All benefits will continue as normal during the suspension of operations, regardless of how teammates choose to record their time. Pay practice details have been made available to all teammates.

“When the suspension is lifted, the 787 programme will take an orderly approach to restarting production with a focus on safety, quality, integrity and meeting customer commitments.”
