Nearly 900 furloughed civilians returning to work at Fort McCoy

SPARTA, WI (WTAQ) - Officials at Fort McCoy say almost 900 civilians who were put on furloughs last week will be back at their jobs Tuesday. 

The civilians were sent home last Tuesday after the federal government's partial shutdown began.

However, the "Pay Our Military Act" approved just before the shutdown allows most civilians to legally be on the job. 

Spokeswoman Linda Fournier said some of the workers returned Monday, and the rest will be back Tuesday at the Army base between Sparta and Tomah. 

Training for 2,200 soldiers was canceled at Fort McCoy during the weekend because of the shutdown. 

Earlier, it was announced that most of the 840 civilian technicians in the Wisconsin National Guard were to return Monday morning from their furloughs.
