FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - Fort Campbell is offering incentives to its civilian employees to leave their jobs or retire early and trying to find new jobs for others in order to reduce the number of civilian workers by the end of the fiscal year.
Chuck Munson, deputy garrison commander for the installation on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line, said currently the installation has about 60 to 70 people that it has to move out of their current positions, either through a job change, attrition or voluntary separation.
Munson said the installation is taking these steps to avoid involuntary job cuts, or layoffs.
The Army said last year it would reduce the size of its civilian employee workforce by more than 8,700 people by the end of the 2012 fiscal year due to budget constraints.
