Personnel Restructuring At Red River Army Depot

On a tip from a woman who claimed to work at Red River Army Depot, KTBS asked the depot if they are laying off hundreds of employees. Red River Army Depot released this statement: "Red River Army Depot is working with our chain of command - Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command, Army Materiel Command and the Department of the Army to clarify the rules and regulations associated with the use of term positions. Term positions are defined as one (1) year positions that can be extended up to four (4) years depending on the need. Due to the length of the global war on terrorism, many term positions have been extended to the four year limit. Red River Army Depot is not laying off any people; but some employees are in term appointments that are expiring at this time. In the coming months, RRAD will fill over 600 permanent positions. Persons who are currently in term positions are urged to apply for these permanent positions. The depot employment level will remain the same. We are working to form a path forward while continuing to maintain our skilled workforce."
