The St. Louis Business Journal reports Chairman and Chief Executive Jim McNerney made the announcement in a conference call with analysts and investors on Wednesday.

According to the report, Boeing previously issued 60-day layoff notices to 1,020 employees in February that included some in St. Louis.
