Notices of decision to furlough sent to federal civilian workers

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Notices of decision to furlough are being sent to affected federal personnel this week. Joint Region Marianas deputy public affairs officer Coleen San Nicolas-Perez says there are 224 civilian employees assigned to Joint Region Marianas, Naval Base Guam and Andersen Air Force Base who will be impacted by the furlough. 

Another 202 civilian personnel were exempted because their jobs were deemed to be critical to preserve life and property.  Sequestration begins on July 8 on Guam and continues until the end of the fiscal year. It requires that up to 88 workhours be reduced, which equates to 11 workdays spread out over the next few months. 

Joint Region Marianas employees will be furloughed on Mondays beginning on July 8.  San Nicolas-Perez adds the decision to furlough is not a reflection on the performance by civilian employees as leadership recognizes that civilians are critical to meeting the mission.
