Severance packages of up to 39 weeks of pay will be offered as details emerged from director Charlie McMillan’s meeting Thursday with lab employees concerning the volunteer separation program.
McMillan discussed specifics of the program during an all-hands meeting.
The NNSA announced late Wednesday that it approved a plan that would cut 400 to 800 jobs from the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Eligible employees from the regular workforce of about 7,600 may begin applying for voluntary separation on March 5. According to a person who attended the meeting, employees can declare whether they are taking the package March 5-14.
