Jicarilla Apache Nation looks to eliminate more than 200 employees
Posted: Thursday, February 3, 2011
The Jicarilla Apache Nation of New Mexico has passed a resolution that could result in the elimination of over 200 jobs.
The resolution calls for each tribal entity to eliminate three full-time positions within six months. The resolution reportedly states that non-tribal members will be the first to lose their jobs.
"This hasn’t ever been done in the history of the Nation for either members or non-members," spokesperson Leon K. Reval told The Rio Grande Sun.
Some positions are exempt, like those that were funded by federal or state funds.
