Aircraft maker Boeing is cutting back on jobs. They announced on Wednesday that it will cut 4000 jobs by June.

That's about two percent of its worldwide staff.

Boeing said in a statement that it should be able to achieve the job reductions through normal attrition, voluntary buyouts and leaving open positions unfilled.

A spokesperson for the company said they will only use involuntary layoffs as a last resort.

According to company filings, Boeing has trimmed 13,000 jobs since late 2012.

A representative for Boeing told 23ABC that the Taft office will not be impacted by the layoffs.

However, the entire office will be relocating to El Segundo by the end of the year.

The representative told 23ABC that the relocation and cuts are not related. 

It’s not known at this time if the manufacturing plant in Palmdale will be affected.
