(WICHITA, Kan.)—

Planemaker Cessna says it has started implementing a plan to cut back its workforce.

Last month, the company announced it would offer early retirement to 180 workers and proceed with layoffs for others based on performance and other factors.

No word on how many workers are affected by today's action.  Eyewitness News Reporter Jade DeGood is looking into it, look for more later today on Eyewitness News.

Statement from Cessna spokesperson:

On April 29, Cessna announced as part of the Voluntary Retirement Plan offering that the company would also proceed with involuntary separations based on performance and scope of work. The communication at that time indicated that notification of these involuntary separations would occur within the next 30 days.

Today’s actions represent the implementation of the plans announced last month.
