Contract for services at Naval Academy, other sites not renewed

August 15, 2011|By Jamie Smith Hopkins, The Baltimore Sun

Lockheed Martin Corp. is warning state regulators that it will lay off 35 employees based at five Maryland military facilities because a contract to provide services at those locations is not being renewed.

The Bethesda-based defense contractor told the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation that layoffs would affect four employees based at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, two employees based at a Naval Observatory location in Montgomery County, 14 employees based at two Naval Support Activity locations in Maryland and 15 employees based at the Naval Air Station in Patuxent River.

Sept. 30 was given as the last day of work at some locations, but no date was given for others, the state labor department said. Lockheed Martin told the state that some employees might have the opportunity to land jobs with the military directly.

The company did not immediately provide more details Monday.
