Furloughs for civilian employees of the U.S. Air Force Reserve’s 914th Airlift Wing at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station will begin on July 8.

About 360 employees will be furloughed one day a week for 11 weeks as the automatic budget cuts known as “sequestration” take effect, the unit announced Wednesday.

The 914th also will be closed for business on Mondays starting July 8.

Base employees should receive furlough notices later this month or early next month.

Furloughs were originally expected to begin in late April, but the date was not firm, officials said at the time.
