class="post-template-default single single-post postid-1997689 single-format-standard wpb-js-composer js-comp-ver-5.7 vc_responsive" Union Pacific cuts more jobs at North Platte’s Bailey Yard. Railroad officials informed the North Platte Area Chamber and Development Corp. of the latest job cuts, chamber President and CEO Gary Person told The Telegraph. spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza confirmed Wednesday that more jobs have been cut in North Platte and in the South Morrill yard, where the railroad closed one of its two mechanical shops in October. Espinoza declined to specify the newest or cumulative total of job cuts at Bailey Yard, but again attributed the reductions to “a reduced locomotive fleet and fewer rail cars on our network” under Unified Plan 2020.
