General Dynamics will lay off 70 information technology employees at Fort Gordon in late August, according to Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification paperwork filed with the Georgia Department of Labor.
According to a letter from General Dynamics’ human resource department, certain operations will stop in late August and employees will be laid off Aug. 31 or the first week of September.
General Dynamics will try to help terminated employees find other positions within the company, the letter said. The work General Dynamics was doing at Fort Gordon has been given to another contractor, and the letter said it is possible some affected employees might be able to transfer to that contractor.
The employees were notified July 3.
