Privatisation legacy: 500 jobs to go at QR National

Privatisation legacy: 500 jobs to go at QR National

QR National today has begun consulting with employees and unions on further proposed company-wide changes as part of a restructuring that commenced in 2011.

The proposed changes include restructuring and reform across QR National that are aimed at reducing costs, improving efficiency and delivering enhanced customer service.

Employees across the company will be asked for expressions of interest in voluntary redundancy. QR National says there will be no forced redundancies and no forced relocations for the majority of employees.

The final organisation structures and number of redundancies decided upon by QR National will be dependent on feedback received from staff and unions during the consultation process. However, based on the proposed restructuring and previous demand in the last company-wide voluntary redundancy scheme, it is anticipated this would be in excess of 500.
