INL Workers Could be Sent Home If Shut Down Continues

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — About 3,700 workers at the Idaho National Laboratory in eastern Idaho will stop reporting for work if the government shutdown continues.

The Post Register reports that about 2,600 workers with Battelle Energy Alliance will stop reporting for work Friday and another 1,100 with Idaho Cleanup Project will be furloughed beginning Oct. 21.

It’s unclear what will happen with another 600 employees at the Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project. Idaho Department of Labor spokesman Will Jenson says about 25 percent of eastern Idaho’s workforce work at the site.
