TULSA, Okla. —
Union leaders have called the Tulsa hub the largest concentration of middle-class jobs in Oklahoma, with the average employee making about $50,000 a year, similar to the city’s other main industry of oil.
Mike Neal, president and CEO of the Tulsa Metro Chamber, said his agency would help displaced workers find other opportunities and training tailored to the area’s aerospace industry.
“Tulsa is a community that will support those impacted by today’s announcement,” he said in a statement late Friday. “Yet, it is important to remember that thousands of jobs that are vital to our community, which were at one time threatened, will continue to be preserved.”
