Associated Press
BREMERTON -- The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard had planned to hire 560 workers this week, but the plans are on hold because of a Navy freeze on civilian jobs while Congress debates federal spending cuts.
The commanding officer, Capt. Steve Williamson, informed the shipyard's 11,000 civilian employees Wednesday about cost-cutting measures.
The Kitsap Sun reported shipyard crews are working on a year-long overhaul of the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan. About 1,000 Bremerton employees are in San Diego working on the carrier Carl Vinson.
The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard also is working on maintenance or refueling for three submarines and dismantling two decommissioned subs and a guided missile cruiser.
