Letterkenny Army Depot completing layoffs of 244 workers

March 21, 2013

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Letterkenny Army Depot this week is completing layoffs of 244 contracted employees as announced in January, a depot spokeswoman said.

The layoffs occurring this week are not associated with the federal budget cuts known as the sequester, according to depot spokeswoman Lindsay Bryant.

Instead, demand decreased for an Army Humvee program, Bryant said.

“The workforce was resized to meet the workload,” she said.

The depot, which employs up to 4,000 people, is anticipating additional layoffs and furloughs related to the sequester.

The Army Community Service program from Carlisle, Pa., is providing financial counseling and credit management tips this week to help prepare employees for upcoming work reductions, Bryant said.
