Arkansas National Guard recalls most furloughed employees

Posted: Updated:

CAMP ROBINSON (KATV) - The Arkansas National Guard is recalling most of its 738 furloughed employees. 

The Public Affairs department released a statement saying most dual-status military technicians and civilian federal employees will return to work after guidance was issued Saturday from the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

The recall does not include 294 state employees of the Arkansas Military Department. 

"While I am relieved we are putting most of our technicians back to work, I am deeply concerned about the continued financial and emotional impact on employees of the Arkansas Military Department," said Maj. Gen. William D. Wofford, The Adjutant General for Arkansas, "All our employees are critical to the mission of the Guard, we will not be back at 100% until the government shutdown ends and we are back to business as usual."  

The Public Affairs statement emphasizes that employees should not show up to work on Monday until they are notified by their supervisors.
