Scott AFB Staff Reductions



Air Force streamlining efforts mean nearly three dozen civilian jobs have been cut at Scott Air Force Base in southwestern Illinois.
 
The Belleville News-Democrat (http://bit.ly/YI7qug) reports the 33 jobs at Scott's Air Force Network Integration Center were eliminated when a contract with the workers' employer ended at the end of last month.
 
But Col. Brenda Campbell, a spokeswoman for the Air Force Space Command at Colorado's Peterson Air Force Base, says the lost Illinois jobs will translate to nine new in-house positions at Peterson.
 
Campbell says the Air Force will save money long-term through the consolidation.
