1,400 SRR employees furloughed after government shutdown
Approximately 1,400 Savannah River Remediation employees are furloughed until further notice.
Employees were notified through a message today about the furloughs - or an involuntary unpaid leave of absence - which are the result of the government shutdown.
"As you are probably aware, the annual funding for the Federal Government expired at midnight on September 30. Although the Department has been able to fund some continued activity for this contract following that date, the continued lapse in appropriations is having a significant impact on continued operations requiring us to make certain employment decisions. Therefore, some Savannah River Remediation employees will be furloughed until further notice," states the message from SRR.
Only around 360 employees will remain during the furlough period "to maintain liquid waste facilities in a safe and non-operating mode," continues the message.
It is unclear how long furloughs will last because "like you, we do not know how long this shut down will continue," states the message.
