Mashantucket Pequot Tribe To Cut More Government Positions

Feather News

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation reportedly notified its tribal government employees that they can take advantage of a voluntary buyout package. The news comes about six months after the tribal government employees shed 170 positions, some through layoffs and some through a voluntary buyout program.

In the voluntary buyout program last May, employees were offered 6 months of compensation and benefits and one week of salary for every year worked, up to 10 years.
