TUCSON, Ariz. — About 200 civilian workers at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base will be laid off in the coming weeks, according to documents filed with the state earlier this month.

The workers are not employed by the base, but by private contractor DynCorp. The company filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act notice about the layoffs with the state of Arizona on Jan. 15.

The WARN Act requires employers who are planning mass layoffs to file a notice 60 days before terminations.

According to a 2018 news release from DynCorp, the company was hired to provide maintenance support for the A-10 Thunderbolt aircraft stationed at Davis-Monthan.

Air Force officials could not comment on the roles of the 200 workers affected by the layoffs.

DynCorp provided a statement to KGUN 9:

"Recently, the United States Air Force notified DynCorp International that our work in support of the 357th Aircraft Maintenance Unit would be returned to active duty maintenance personnel. It has been an honor to support this effort, and as the largest provider of aviation maintenance services to the United States Army, United States Air Force and United States Coast Guard we look forward to working with our maintenance experts to provide potential opportunities elsewhere.”
