The layoffs, which went into effect Tuesday, August 13— the same day the workers were notified— serve to keep the company competitive in the industry, according to a statement from Ray Hernandez, a spokesman for Pratt & Whitney.
Workers whose positions were cut will still be covered under the company’s group insurance policy, according to Pratt & Whitney. Additionally, severance pay will be issued and outplacement services will assist those workers find positions elsewhere.
