Sunny Point furloughs raise concern

-A A +A
By Laura Lewis, Reporter

Furloughs recently launched at Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point are unnecessary and even dangerous, a Sunny Point firefighter and union representative says.

On July 8, nearly 250 civilian Army employees were furloughed one day a week at the military terminal near Southport as part of federal sequestration.

As a result, the workers’ pay will be reduced 20 percent through September, says Bill McGuire, president of American Federation of Government Employees Local 1708.
