(KTVI)- Aerospace giant Boeing is planning on bringing new jobs to St. Louis while it cuts jobs in Seattle.  According to the Seattle Times, the company plans to cut 1,500 information-technology positions in Washington state over the next three years.

The IT positions include systems engineers, applications developers and database administrators. The cuts will come through a combination of layoffs, attrition from retirements, and relocation of some jobs to two new IT centers Boeing is establishing in St. Louis and North Charleston, SC.

The company plans to publicly announce the changes on Monday but managers were already briefed on the plan.

In March, Boeing unveiled a three-year restructuring plan for the IT division that included migrating work from Southern California and the Puget Sound region to two new “centers of excellence” in Missouri and South Carolina. The new IT centers in Missouri and South Carolina would employ about 600 people at each, including some relocated Seattle-based employees.
