NASA Shuttle to Constellation Workforce Transition Strategy Report

"Background: NASA's workforce surveys have indicated that communication is the key to managing the workforce during transition. NASA and its prime contractors are engaged in a robust communications effort at all levels to ensure that the workforce is kept informed of current programs and future plans. The Agency is utilizing many tools and media options to make this possible, and the effectiveness of these tools is continually evaluated in both surveys and by monitoring various media metrics."

Weldon Amendment Forces NASA to Reveal Massive Layoffs

"In today's "Workforce Transition Strategy Initial Report," NASA estimated that there will be at least 6,400 jobs eliminated between FY 08 and FY 2011 at Kennedy Space Center alone. Of those 6,400 layoffs, NASA forecasted that 4,800 will come all in one year - 2011. These numbers could grow if problems arise with the Constellation program due to technological or funding issues."
