NEW BOSTON, Texas — The Red River Army Depot says they could see a reduction of up to 180 contract personnel and government term employees at the depot, which would take place later this year.
The reduction will impact up to 88 government term employees and 92 contract personnel starting in October.
“The ebb and flow of our contractor and term workforce enables Red River Army Depot to surge to mission requirements when necessary,” Red River Army Depot Commander Col. John Kredo said. “The labor contract allows Red River to meet its modernization and sustainment goals while maintaining fiscal responsibility to our taxpayers.”
The projected reductions are based on the workload identified in May.
“Red River is posturing itself for the future and working toward modernization in support of the Army’s future needs,” said Kredo.
Army leaders will still try to look for appropriate opportunities to utilize the depot’s capabilities, according to Kredo.
