USAREUR to cut civilian jobs

U.S. Army Europe will cut 160 civilian positions by Sept. 30, officials announced Friday.

The 160 jobs set to be reduced are in command headquarters, the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, Joint Multinational Training Command, and in USAREUR's brigade combat teams.

The cuts do not affect the local national workforce, according to the USAREUR announcement, but the command will continue to "transform the entire civilian workforce to match the demands of supporting its uniformed forces."

Leaders and supervisors are doing everything possible to mitigate the effects of these cuts, officials said.

"USAREUR recognizes the dedicated service of our civilian employees and is committed to treating all employees with the dignity and respect they rightfully deserve," acting commanding general Maj. Gen. James Boozer said in a statement.

These cuts follow the inactivation of two brigade combat teams from Europe. The 170th BCT was inactivated Oct. 9, while the 172nd BCT is scheduled to be inactivated next October.

In all, USAREUR is slated to lose about 10,000 soldiers, leaving the command with about 30,000 soldiers.
