The Boeing Co. is also shutting down early today, at least for part of the day. It is suspending operations during Thursday’s second shift.
“Due to ongoing inclement weather, first shift employees are encouraged to return home,” spokeswoman Chamila Jayaweera said in a statement. “Where feasible, employees who have management approval to work remotely can do so in accordance with Boeing procedures."
