The Army is cutting 8,700 civilian jobs on 70 bases across the country, and even larger budget cuts loom.
The Army hopes to achieve most of the reductions through attrition, early retirement and voluntary buyouts before a deadline set in September 2012, Lt. Col. Laurel Devine, Pentagon public affairs officer, told The Daily yesterday…
The cuts affect blue- and white-collar positions in 37 states, with the majority occurring in Army commands that handle installation management, training and doctrine. Four states — Virginia, Alabama, Georgia and Texas — are losing more than 600 jobs each, according to documents obtained by The Daily.
