Aurizon says it’s ‘business as usual’ after recent job cuts
AURIZON bosses might have been in Rockhampton yesterday but the company was tight-lipped about the purpose of the visit.
The rail giant assured employees it was "business as usual" just weeks after announcing it was shedding 40 jobs in Rockhampton as it began a three-year plan to cut 800 staff across its operations.
A spokesperson said Central Queensland Aurizon sites were significant to the company and such regular site visits were part of the process and not directly related to the recent redundancies.
"As one of Aurizon's largest regional centres with about 1000 employees, the Rockhampton region including Gracemere and Stanwell depots sees regular visits by senior company leaders," the spokesperson said.
"The process with the workplace changes is continuing between employees and local management and is separate to any visit by senior people."
