Airbus to furlough 3.2K workers at Wales factory

Airbus SE said on Monday it will furlough approximately 3,200 staff at its factory in Broughton, Wales, as the coronavirus crisis endangered the company's survival.

"Airbus confirms it has agreed with its social partners to apply the government’s Job Retention Scheme for approximately 3,200 production and production-support employees at its commercial aircraft site in Broughton," the company stated.

Meanwhile, Airbus' biggest competitor Boeing has also entered severe troubles, as it's CEO Dave Calhoun recently warned the American planemaker will not pay dividends to shareholders during the next couple of years.
