Robins offering buyouts to workers | News
Robins Air Force Base is accepting buyout applications from up to 100 civilian employees, part of a new round of Air Force budget-cutting.
In a news release Friday, the base said selected workers will be offered incentives of up to $25,000 for early retirement and separation.
The base recently said it may eliminate up to 258 jobs at its Headquarters Air Force Reserve Command, about a quarter of the jobs there.
The reductions are a part of an Air Force program to eliminate 3,459 positions, the news release states. They say the cuts would save $1.6 billion over the next four years.
Robins says it will accept applications from up to 15 specialties, including human resources,budget analysts and material handlers.
The base says they will approve fewer than 100 buyouts, and those workers must leave by Sept. 30.
