“Glenn’s work force, packed with highly educated scientists and engineers, would slip to about 1,700 by the end of this year and to 1,562 by the end of 2007, NASA Glenn’s new director Woodrow Whitlow said.”

“It was not clear what the cuts might mean in terms of jobs. Since 2004, the center has seen its budget drop from more than $800 million to $603 million, and its workforce shrink by nearly a third to 2,100.”

“NASA’s spacecraft plant in eastern New Orleans will build 17 more fuel tanks for the space shuttle, fewer than half the number that had been planned prior to the Columbia shuttle accident — but still enough to keep the factory’s 2,000 workers busy for several more years.”

“Jobs should be stable. The center was able to trim its civil service work force by 300 over the past two years by offering buyout packages and early retirements. It also cut 300 contractors, she said. She is not planning for any layoffs in the next year, and the work force should hold steady at 3,600 2,000 civil service workers and 1,600 contractors.”

“This is a good budget for Marshall. This is a very stable budget and it provides for a very stable work force,” King told reporters Monday. “It keeps in place our 2,600 civil servants.”
