HERNDON, Va., July 30, 2010 -- Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) has issued a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) for 173 employees who support the Fort Eustis Directorate of Logistics (DoL) program.

"While we were recently awarded the recompete on the DoL program, the new contract has a few changes; one key change was a small business requirement for the food services portion of the contract," said Ron Ellis, Northrop Grumman Technical Services DoL program manager. "The reduction in force (RIF) is a result of this change. The men and women of Northrop Grumman are our number one asset, and we will assist those affected by this RIF during this time of transition."

Under the terms of the contract, Northrop Grumman provides a full range of logistics services to support Fort Eustis and its tenant commands including maintenance, supply and transportation.

Northrop Grumman Corporation is a leading global security company whose 120,000 employees provide innovative systems, products, and solutions in aerospace, electronics, information systems, shipbuilding and technical services to government and commercial customers worldwide.
