Furlough to affect hundreds of federal employees at Vienna base

Posted: Updated:

VIENNA, Ohio - Furlough notices have been sent out to hundreds of federal employees at the airbase in Vienna.

440 employees were sent letters this morning.

Major Brent Davis said that the federal employees will go down to working 32 hours a week. 

One day each week will be without pay until the end of the fiscal year.

The furloughs are expected to kick in July 15.

According to a release, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced that he has signed a memorandum directing defense managers to prepare to furlough thousands of the Defense Department civilian employees between July 8 and September 30.

Major budgetary shortfalls drove the basic furlough decision, after the sequestration went into affect on March 1.

Below is a schedule of the planning and implementation of furloughs that will be carried out:

-- May 28 - June 5: Furlough proposal notices will be served to individual employees subject to furloughs.

-- June 4 - June 12: Individual employee reply periods end 7 calendar days from when the proposal was received, unless Component procedures allow for a different reply period.

-- June 5 - July 5: Furlough decision letters will be served to individual employees subject to furloughs, depending on when the proposal was received and prior to the first day of furlough.
