Vt. National Guard furlough is reduced

Posted: Updated:
COLCHESTER, Vt. -

The impact of sequestration on the Vermont National Guard has been scaled back.

The furlough date for guard technicians was pushed back from April to June, which means instead of a 20 percent pay cut, the 500 or so Vermont employees whose paychecks will be affected will now only see a 5 percent pay decrease. Instead of one furlough day per week for 22 weeks, employees will likely be told not to come to work two times per pay period for seven weeks.
