McDONNELL DOUGLAS TO LAYOFF 56 EMPLOYEES IN TULSA

 ST. LOUIS, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonnell Douglas today said it will notify 56 employees at its plant in Tulsa, Okla., that they will be laid off, primarily due to the temporary downturn in F-15 work and continuing softness in commercial aircraft production.
 Of the 56 employees who will be laid off, 39 are members of United Auto Workers Locals 1093 and 73. They will be notified today and their last day at work will be Friday, Sept. 10. The 48-hour notification is in keeping with the collective bargaining agreements for those employees.
 The 17 salaried employees who will be laid off will be notified Friday, Sept. 10, and their last day at work will be Friday, Sept. 24. The two-week notification is in accordance with company policy for salaried employees.
 Work on the F-15 program continues to temporarily taper off due to a gap of approximately 11 months between production of the last F-15E on the books for the U.S. Air Force and the first of 72 new F-15s that will be made for Saudi Arabia.
 After the layoffs announced today take effect, employment at the Tulsa plant will total approximately 1,200 people.
