Pacific Beach electronic warfare workers being laid off

Workers associated with support to mobile electronic warfare training in Grays Harbor are being laid off.

In an update from the Washington Employment Security Department, 10 workers of AECOM located in both Pacific Beach and Whidbey Island will be permanently laid-off.

The workers are expected to end their employment on September 30th.

The workers are not being let go as part of a closure, and it is not known at this time how many other workers remain on the projects to maintain electronic warfare work locally.

AECOM has recently posted a job opening for an Electronics Technician- Maintenance II position in Pacific Beach. 

No further public information was available from the Employment Security Department.

AECOM provides “operational and technical maintenance support of mobile electronic warfare systems for the PNW Range” according to their website.

Staff from the local rapid response team and WorkSource center will perform outreach to employees of the organization to ease the transition.
