A Pentagon spokesman announced Tuesday that the department has not reached a decision yet to reduce the remaining number of furlough days for civilian personnel for fiscal 2013, The Washington Post reports Tuesday.
Josh Hicks writes that the 640,000 civilian workers have already served four unpaid days since the Pentagon implemented furloughs on July 8.
Most civilian workers are scheduled to take 11 unpaid days from July 8 until September 30.
The spokesman’s statement differed from an Associated Press report that said the Pentagon plans to cancel as much as five furlough days.
Earlier this month, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission cancelled the second round of furloughs for its employees.
