Senator Charles Schumer visited DFAS in Rome today, where he assured the 950 workers there that their jobs are safe.

Schumer says there are no plans to close DFAS due to a pilot program elsewhere.

He says in fact, the pilot study at Fort Bragg, which many believed would start on April 1st, has been postponed.

The senator says regardless of the future status of that pilot,  he’s been assured by Army Secretary John McHugh and Under Secretary of Defense Bob Hale that the Rome site will not close as a result.

Schumer says DFAS Rome is one of the Arny’s most efficient and cost-effective sites.

He also vowed to continue to fight for DFAS and the top-notch workers at the Rome facility.

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi joined Senator Schumer in Rome and issued the following statement

“Senator Schumer has always understood how productive the workforce at DFAS is and its importance to the Mohawk Valley’s economy.  It is very reassuring that he took the time today to address DFAS’s employees, and outline his commitment to keeping this facility open.  I’ll continue to work to ensure New York does not fall asleep at the wheel when it comes to advocating for DFAS and its employees.”
