INL Contractor Announces Cost Cuts

flickr.com, Idaho National Laboratory

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho National Laboratory contractor has notified employees that it has started an involuntary separation program as it tries to cut costs in the wake of federal budget cuts.

The Post Register Reports that Battelle Energy Alliance officials told workers in Safeguards and Security that the decision follows a voluntary separation that saw 13 workers leave. Battelle officials say the cuts are needed as part of the $85 billion in across-the-board federal budget cuts that went into effect earlier this year.

Battelle also says it is looking for workers at the Advanced Test Reactor Complex who want to volunteer to leave their jobs.
