Thiokol Corp. has told its Northern Utah employees this week that it will terminate 200 positions on Nov. 10.

The work-force reductions are in response to NASA budget cuts, delayed contracts and completed work on the Peacekeeper missile program, said Thiokol spokesman Steve Lawson.The 200 will be released from four of Thiokol's work centers: Strategic Operations, Space Operations, Science and Engineering, and Information Systems.

Lawson said the affected workers will be offered help in several ways, including assistance in finding a position at other Thiokol divisions, out-placement job search services and a service-based separation pay plan.
