Thousands of Wright-Patterson civil service employees won’t be forced to take as many unpaid furlough days off the job, the Pentagon said Tuesday.
The number of unpaid days off will drop to six from 11 for about 10,000 Wright-Patterson civilian employees.
The Pentagon found additional savings to cancel the planned number of days, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said in a statement.
The furloughs began the week of July 8 and were set to continue through September.
