Layoffs at Bell Helicopter

-
About 325 employees at Bell Helicopter have been laid off.

The layoffs are happening primarily in the Fort Worth area for management and non-management employees.

Officials say the V-22 multi-year two contract is reducing the build rate on Bell Helicopters biggest program by nearly half.

They say this is affecting the level of work in the Fort Worth manufacturing centers. 

No word yet if Amarillo employees will be affected.
