WICHITA, Kan. — Union Pacific is eliminating its Wichita, Kan., Service Unit on May 1, a move that will result in three management positions being reassigned to other parts of the system. In a news release, the railroad says that the former Wichita Service Unit area would be consolidated with the Kansas City, Fort Worth, and North Little Rock units.

Railroad officials say the move is being made to help the company as it “continues aligning operations to meet customer demands amid marketplace shifts.”
While three management positions will be moved, no transportation, engineering, mechanical, or maintenance jobs will be affected.

Until recently, UP operated more than 20 service units across three regions. The Wichita unit is the second to be consolidated in recent months after the duties of the Pocatello Service Unit management were reassigned to the Portland and Utah units.
