RICHLAND -- Three Hanford nuclear reservation contractors are planning to lay off a combined 450 workers, with most of those pink slips coming in the next two months.
The Tri-City Herald reported that the layoffs are a continuing effect of the mandatory federal cuts — known as sequestration. The layoff notices went out Thursday.
Washington River Protection Solutions, which is the Hanford tank farm contractor, plans to reduce its workforce by up to 250 employees by Jan. 30.
CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Co. and Mission Support Alliance each plan to cut about 100 jobs.
KONA-AM reported that CH2M Hills cited a decrease in the scope of the groundwater and sludge treatment program, and questions about funding for current fiscal year that started in October.
Mission Support Alliance said none of it job cuts involve security or firefighters.
