Sverdlovsk Region Railways to cut jobs

In 2010, Russian Railways is planning to implement its restructuring program and set up Russian Railways Holding, which means, among other things, that Sverdlovsk Region Railways (the company’s subsidiary) will no longer have some if its front offices; also, its non-core activity will now be outsourced, says Sverdlovsk Region Railways’ PR Department.


Sverdlovsk Region Railways insists the reorganization will not result in large-scale layoffs.


The company expects to outsource its motor vehicle facilities to OOO ResourceTrans this year. In addition, Russian Railways’ local customer service department will be merged with the newly founded OAO Federal Passenger Company.


The company’s employees have already been informed of the changes and offered to get transferred to the new divisions.
