No decision has been made

After a year of uncertainty for workers at Cherry Point’s Fleet Readiness Center East, more may be in store.

Some employees may be given incentives for early retirements or early-outs next year.

“Our headquarters command is considering this option,” said David F. Marriott, a public affairs specialist at FRC East.

It isn’t clear how many jobs could be affected if that option is selected. About one out of four FRC East employees is eligible for retirement in the next five years. The average age for workers is 47.

Marriott stressed that no decision has been made.

“Our headquarters command has not made the decision to offer early retirements,” he said.

Navy Cmdr. Bill Urban, spokesman at the Pentagon, said he had not heard of any plans for early retirements in the case of FRC East.
