Redstone Arsenal Employees Recalled to Normal Duty Status
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Redstone Arsenal officials say furloughed workers will be going back to work Monday morning.
The news on who would be headed back was released to Arsenal employees Sunday evening.
“Each employee should get specific guidance from their supervisor as to whether this affects them or not so every employee should remain in close contact with their leadership to understand their unique situation,” said Colonel Bill Marks, Garrison Commander.
Marks says as information becomes available, they will do their best to keep everyone notified.
The House unanimously passed legislation that would allow furloughed employees retroactive pay, but Redstone Arsenal Spokesperson Terri Stover says that has been unclear. “That’s what we’re hearing but no one knows exactly when that will happen and we’re all still in a big flux,” Stover says.
The number of workers furloughed at the Arsenal is in the thousands, but Stover says a definite number is hard to come by. “It’s a lot to pin down because some organizations (have) people working, but not all their people working. It’s just, it’s mind boggling how at Redstone we don’t have a firm number,” Stover says.
