(New Cumberland) -- Workers at a midstate military supply center are concerned they may lose their jobs under a plan to outsource positions to the private sector.

Dozens of people who work at the Defense Logistics Agency at Susquehanna Depot met with labor leaders to get information about the potential changes.

About 2,000 people currently work at the facility in New Cumberland.

Labor leaders are encouraging the workers to pressure federal lawmakers to keep the jobs in south-central Pennsylvania.

The center distributes military components around the world.

    I think Defense Logistics Agency should have to give excess concern on this issue otherwise 2000 people will remain jobless.
