Bell Helicopter lays off 15 hourly workers


FORT WORTH -- Fifteen hourly workers have been laid off at Bell Helicopter, a union official has confirmed.

The layoffs affected dispatchers and experimental and electrical assemblers, said Gary Livingston, former president of UAW-218. The individuals were included in a "surplus" or layoff list, he said.

"It's been relatively slow at Bell as far as layoffs for a number of years," Livingston said. "We've had some small ones. This is probably the largest one we've had in a good while."

Bell employs about 6,000 employees in Tarrant County.
