The Air Force announced Nov. 2 that it will launch a major restructuring of its civilian workforce that will result in a net reduction of thousands of civilian jobs, reports CNN.
The service will cut 9,000 jobs in management and support positions, and create 5,900 new positions to deal with growth areas such as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
The changes are being made to carry out a directive from the secretary of defense to halt civilian job growth at fiscal 2010 levels and also deal with new battlefield priorities, Air Force officials said.
The restructuring is scheduled to go into effect by Oct. 1, 2012, they said.
