Pa. Army Depot To Cut Up To 130 Contract Workers

TOBYHANNA, Pa. (AP) – An Army depot in eastern Pennsylvania has announced plans to cut as many as 130 contract workers over the next few months.

The Tobyhanna Army Depot in Monroe County said in a statement that the cuts are necessary because of the decreasing workload.

Col. Charles Gibson, depot commander, said reductions are always difficult, but “we simply do not have sufficient work for all of these contract workers.”

The cutbacks are to be phased in over several months beginning April 13.
