Columbus AFB to lose 17 civilian jobs in cost-cutting move
Published: November 6,2011
COLUMBUS — Columbus Air Force Base expects to lose about 17 jobs as the Air Force moves to trim its civilian work force by 9,000 people.
CAFB chief of manpower/personnel Christopher Chesser tells WTVA-TV four of those are positions that are already vacant, two are taking early retirement and the other 11 will be taken care of.
Chesser says CAFB has a plan to place those 11 personnel into existing vacancies.
He says the reassignments from the 2012 cuts will take effect April 1, 2012.
Yesterday, Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi announced it was trimming 68 civilian positions due to the Air Force’s cost-cutting initiative.
