ATK lays off 100 in sixth cut in Utah over two years

ATK Aerospace Systems told employees in June it would conduct another round of layoffs in its aerospace systems group. On Wednesday it followed through, cutting 100 in the wake of NASA’s shutdown of the U.S. space shuttle program. ATK spokeswoman Trina Patterson said that among the number, 28 were volunteers and five were transferred to other divisions. Salt Lake Tribune
