Georgia FAA workers told they must take furloughs

ATLANTA — Authorities say about 2,000 Federal Aviation Administration employees in metro Atlanta are being told they will have to take unpaid time off because of automatic federal budget cuts.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports ( that the workers have been told they must take as many as 11 unpaid days off in coming months.

FAA Administrator Michael Huerta notified employees that the furlough days will occur from April 7 through Sept. 30.

The FAA has major control centers in metro Atlanta, as well as a regional office and employees at airports.

So far, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has reported no abnormally long security lines or flight delays as a result of the budget cuts known as sequestration, since the FAA furloughs aren’t set to begin until next month.
