Most furloughed workers at 180th returning to work

SWANTON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Most of the 200 furloughed technicians at the Air National Guard Base in Swanton are being told to return to work on Monday.

That's according to Major Gary Bentley of the 180th Fighter Wing.

They have been on furlough since the partial Government shutdown that began last Tuesday.

The 180th is spending the evening sending emails and making calls to affected workers to return to work.

Training flights will also resume on Monday but the flying schedule won't return to normal for a few days.

The recall stems from a Department of Defense directive to bring back to work anyone who meets certain criteria.

It is also based on a recent "Pay Our Military Act" passed by Congress and signed by the President.
