Contractors issue layoff notices in Oklahoma City due to federal spending cuts

Sequestration prompts layoff notices that could affect more than 300 workers in Oklahoma City.

Williams said he is hopeful the forced spending cuts will be reversed when the federal government starts a new fiscal year at the beginning of October. He hopes to be notified by the end of August whether ISG workers can go back to work at Mike Monroney.

Some ISG workers already have been furloughed, and others are wrapping up continuing training programs at the aeronautical center and waiting to learn if they will be laid off, Williams said.

ISG is a subcontractor for Raytheon and provides instructional support at Mike Monroney.

“This is something that is happening because of the terrible position we are in with the federal government and sequestration,” Williams said.

Roland Herwig, a spokesman for the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, declined to comment. A request to the FAA for comment was not immediately returned.
