Pratt & Whitney will cut 200 salaried jobs as part of its restructuring, starting Wednesday – 170 will be in Connecticut.
Company officials said they are cutting jobs because of declines in engine orders, and maintenance and repair in the airline industry, the company said.
The East Hartford-based company announced in March that the cuts would be coming. They represent less than 1 percent of its work force of 37,000 people.
United Technologies Corp., the company’s parent company, plans to cut 11,600 jobs, or 5 percent of its global work force.
