GE Aviation is offering voluntary furloughs to some employees because of lack of work.
The company is making the offer to employees at its Rutland blade and vane plants.
Spokeswoman Kelly Morton says the company made the voluntary offer for 45 workers.
Those taking the offer will receive about 75 percent of their pay and receive full medical coverage at little or no cost until being recalled in June.
The plants employ just under 1,200 workers who make compressor blades and vanes for commercial and military jet engines.
