Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

PASCAGOULA, Miss., Aug. 3, 2010 Northrop Grumman
(NYSE:NOC) has issued a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification
(WARN) for 205 employees at the Gulf Coast shipbuilding facilities at
Avondale, La. and Tallulah, La. The affected employees soon will

receive information and other details regarding this action.

Additional layoffs are expected this calendar year. Included in above
number, 95 employees at the Tallulah facility will be notified
individually or through their union that the facility will cease
operations on or about Oct. 29, 2010 with closure of the facility
expected by Dec. 3, 2010.

"This reduction is a result of the shipbuilding consolidation announced
on July 13, 2010, combined with our need to align the workforce with
the remaining work to be accomplished in Avondale and Tallulah, La.,"
said Irwin F. Edenzon, vice president and general manager of Northrop
Grumman Shipbuilding-Gulf Coast. "This reduction is a necessary step in
our effort to maintain a healthy and productive industrial footprint in
the Gulf Coast, and structure our workforce to meet future business
needs. We will assist those affected during this time of transition."

The Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding sector has begun this phased
reduction in force as part of the scheduled discontinuation of
shipbuilding activity to conclude by 2013. Reductions will impact
employees in both union-represented positions and non-union positions.

Non-represented employees will receive information on eligibility for
severance benefits and other career-transition services that will be
provided. Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding will discuss the effects of the
consolidation effort with the applicable union including any benefits
that may be available for union-represented employees.
