FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) - Wright Patterson Air Force Base officials are planning to issue furlough notices Monday, unless the Department of Defense says otherwise.
88th Air Base Wing Commander Cassie Barlow says she is trying to stay positive and hopes the furloughs will be delayed. "We are still very hopeful that the date will be pushed back and the department and the Air Force will be able to buy back some of those furlough days," said Barlow.
13,000 civilian workers on base are among those asked to take 14 unpaid furlough days between June 16 and September. The number of days was cut back from the original number of 22 days off.
"Wright Patterson Air Force Base has about 70 percent of our employees that are civilians. So, if you can imagine any one day of the week losing 70 percent of your workforce, that's the biggest concern. The other concern is that we are going from a 40 hour week back to a 32 hour week," said Barlow.
