(York) -- Global defense contractor BAE Systems PLC says it is cutting 135 jobs at its York facility over the next three months.
The company says the York plant is nearing the lowest production levels in its 30-plus year history.
A spokesman says approximately one-third of the layoffs are because of current military contracts ending and the remainder is related to a proposed three-year manufacturing shutdown of Bradley armored tanks.
BAE says it's working with the Army to maintain as much of the York facility as possible.
