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 ( 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.
