ULA Continues to Shrink Workforce

United Launch Alliance continues to shrink its workforce as it seeks to become more competitive with SpaceX.

The Centennial-based rocketmaker, the largest space launch contractor to the federal government, is seeking voluntary departures to trim an unspecified number of positions….

The company shed 350 jobs last year through a combination of voluntary buyouts and layoffs and said last summer more cuts would be coming this year….

ULA employed about 3,750 in 2015, about 1,700 of them locally.
