GLENDALE, Ariz. -

More than 400 civilian employees are returning to work at Luke Air Force Base on Monday.

A spokesperson for Luke Air Force base says 412 civilians, who were on furlough, will go back to work on Monday. 

The order to return to their jobs came down on Sunday morning.

The agreement to give the civilian workers their pay back was passed by Congress on Friday. 

The workers were furloughed because of the government shutdown that went into effect on Tuesday. 

A group of the furloughed civilian employees held a protest outside Luke Air Force base on Tuesday and Wednesday.
