Media Statement regarding Rockwell Collins Cost-Cutting Measures – April 2012 actions
Our company's Government Systems business continues to face challenging times, driven primarily by the slowdown in defense spending in the U.S. As the government trims the budget, and faces pending Sequestration, we must continue to adjust the size of our workforce to the market demand.
As a result, we have notified approximately 70 employees across multiple Government Systems locations that their positions are being eliminated. Primary locations affected include Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Richardson, Texas; and Duluth, Georgia.
Although difficult, these actions are required to reduce operational expenses and to position our government business for long-term success.
