A union official confirmed reports that 150 jobs will be leaving Fort Drum when contractor DynCorp International starts moving some operations to Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort Campbell, Ky.

Brian A. Gagnon, president of Local Lodge 2920 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, said the announcement came from DynCorp management Friday.

Mr. Gagnon said that concerns over budget sequestration drove the decision to reduce the size of the Fort Drum RESET program, which fixes Black Hawk helicopters coming back from Afghanistan, from 220 to 70 employees starting at the end of March and ending midsummer.

DynCorp International officials were not available for comment Monday night.
