UP consolidates management at Council Bluffs Service Unit

Union Pacific Railroad on Tuesday announced it's consolidating management of the Council Bluffs Service Unit with the Twin Cities, North Platte and Chicago service units, effective July 15.

Five management positions in the Council Bluffs unit will be reassigned to other locations as the railroad continues aligning operations to meet customer demands amid marketplace shifts, UP officials said in a press release.

Transportation, engineering, mechanical, maintenance and other operations in the Council Bluffs unit will remain in place, they said. The unit manages about 600 miles of track in Iowa and Nebraska.
