More than 300 employees will soon be released from their jobs at the Anniston Army Depot due to declining projected workloads. The depot announced Thursday, that it expects to release 196 term and 108 contractor personnel, starting in approximately 60 days. No permanent employees will be affected.
Term employees and contractors are brought onboard for a specific period of time in order to meet workload requirements. Those contract employees actually work for Amentum, formerly known as AECOM Management Services.
Depot Commander Colonel Eric McCoy, informed media outlets that the workload for the next fiscal year is causing adjustments, which he said make for a “difficult time.” McCoy said management is working toward a smooth transition.
