Union Pacific Consolidates Pocatello Service Unit Management

Omaha, Neb., March 22, 2017

Union Pacific today announced it is consolidating its Pocatello Service Unit management with its Portland and Utah service units effective April 1. Five management positions will be reassigned to other locations as the company continues aligning operations to meet customer demands amid marketplace shifts.

The transportation, engineering, mechanical, maintenance and other operations necessary to continue running a safe and efficient railroad will remain in place. The realignment will result in an operating structure similar to pre-2005 in Idaho.

The Pocatello Depot will remain an operational structure where Union Pacific crews will continue to go on and off duty while carrying out normal operations.
