Thousands of civilians work on the Rock Island Arsenal, and employees there have been bracing for months for the impact of sequestration.

Rhys Fullerlove, a spokesman for the Joint Manufacturing and Technology Center, said Wednesday the center will begin holding planning meetings with its two union locals.

There are a number of different agencies on the island, so how the furloughs would be carried out likely will vary.

The Arsenal is one of the largest employers in the Quad-Cities.
