Fort Campbell Will See Shortened Work Week
Fort Campbell’s garrison commander says civilian employees will be cut to four-day work weeks starting in July, as part of a furlough program stemming from budget cuts.
Col. David Dellinger said the post’s school employees will have it differently - they will be required to take five furlough days between August and September.
The furloughs will remain in effect until September 30, the end of the military’s budget year.
Dellinger tells the Kentucky New Era the action is unfortunate and “obviously not desired.”
More than 3,000 civilian employees at Fort Campbell received notices last month about the furloughs.
