A union steward affiliated with Fort Campbell says post officials’ efforts to keep civilian employees from taking their mandated furlough days consecutively in order to qualify for unemployment benefits is bullying.

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.
