A company handling airfield logistics operations at Wright-Patterson has filed a notice to layoff 86 employees Aug. 31, according to records with the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services.
WSI All-Star LLC said a contract for the civilian employees at Wright-Patterson was due to expire at the end of next month, according to a letter sent this month to the state.
Palm Beach, Fla.-based GS4 Government Solutions Inc. notified the state under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act, or WARN Act that requires companies to serve notice of large layoffs 60 days before the job losses.
A company spokesperson could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
Wright-Patterson spokesman Daryl Mayer said the base expects to have a logistics contract awarded before the agreement expires. The work also covers supply logistics, vehicle maintenance and moving equipment around the flight line, among other responsibilities, he said.
The Air Force extended WSI All-Star work under a “bridge contract” in a $3.1 million deal reached in April for two months plus three one-month optional extensions.
The company that will continue the work had not been announced Tuesday, according to Mayer.
