USA informs employees of layoff

United Space Alliance by Friday will notify 548 Kennedy Space Center employees that they will be laid off on April 8. Some 697 USA employees companywide will be laid off, including 145 in Houston and four in Huntsville, Ala.

There are no further scheduled layoffs until after the last shuttle flight, USA spokesperson Kari Fluegel said. The layoffs are part of long-planned reductions as a result of the shuttle program nearing its final flight this year.

USA, the lead shuttle contractor, employs 6,350 people, including about 3,900 in Florida.
