Boeing Temporarily Suspends 787 Production in South Carolina
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Boeing will temporarily suspend all 787 operations at Boeing South Carolina (BSC) until further notice, starting on Wednesday, April 8.
This impacts the Airport Campus, Emergent Operations, Interiors Responsibility Center South Carolina and Propulsion South Carolina.
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.
During this time of suspension on the 787 program, Boeing will continue to conduct enhanced cleaning activities at the site and monitor the global supply chain as the situation evolves.
When the suspension is lifted, the 787 program will take an orderly approach to restarting production with a focus on safety, quality, integrity and meeting customer commitments.
