Joint Region Marianas recalls furloughed civilians

Posted: Updated:

Guam - With the stroke of the pen, many furloughed civilian workers were recalled back to work. This weekend President Barack Obama signed the Pay Our Military Act into law, prompting the recall of civilian employees.  Joint Region Marianas employees at both Navy Base Guam and Andersen Air Force Base were called back to work unless they are specifically notified by their supervisor not to return to work. 

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced that there was a determination that was made to allow the DOD to eliminate furloughs for employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service members. 

The recall reduces but does not eliminate civilian furloughs.
