Furloughed Youngstown Air Base workers called back

Posted: Updated:

VIENNA TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Civilian workers furloughed from the Youngstown Air Reserve Station will return to work on Monday even as the government shutdown continues.

The 910th Airlift Wing workers are to report back to the air base for regular work hours.

400 civilian layoffs at the base went into effect Tuesday after congress failed to pass a resolution to continue funding of government operations.

 Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel announced on Saturday that most Department of Defense civilians placed on emergency furlough during the government shutdown would be asked to return to work after President Obama signed the Pay Our Military Act into law,

Attorneys concluded that the law allows the Department of Defense to eliminate furloughs for employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service members.
