General Dynamics Eliminates 35 Vt. Jobs

Defense contractor General Dynamics has announced it is cutting its Vermont workforce by 35 employees.

Spokesman Karl Johnson says the company is consolidating two divisions in St. Petersburg, Fla.

General Dynamics' Vermont workforce drops to 275 with the cuts. The Burlington Free Press reports the jobs that were cut included engineering, administrative and program management positions.

The company's Vermont operation is part of its combat systems division, which makes guns and ammunition for fighter aircraft, tanks and other military vehicles.
