WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Spirit AeroSystems workers will return to
work Monday after a tornado slammed the aircraft parts maker
Saturday night in Wichita.
The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/I4HRsW ) reported that
employees will be paid for their normal work schedule this week.
Workers aren't required to be at work this week unless contacted by
their manager and told otherwise.
Spirit AeroSystems President and CEO Jeff Turner said in a
statement that the company is committed to doing what needs to be
done to have the factory up and running. Turner said the facility
has made good progress with the recovery already.
The tornado tore up roofs and blew out windows. Turner says the
facility doesn't have to be ``perfect or pretty.'' It just has to
be ``safe and operational'' to allow work to resume.
