Lockheed Martin to lay off 95 in Greenbelt

Defense contractor Lockheed Martin Corp. said Wednesday that it will lay off up to 95 employees in Greenbelt when a government contract expires in September.

The employees affected are working on a multi-year contract with the National Archives and Records Administration to build a system for the agency's electronic records archive, a project now coming to an end. Lockheed said the layoffs, which could start in August and will finish by Sept. 30, will likely end up being less than the 95 total because it is working to place employees in other company jobs.

The Greenbelt location will not be shut down, said Jan Gottfredsen, a Lockheed spokeswoman. It's part of a larger facility handling work for other customers, including the Census Bureau and the IRS.
