More than a thousand jobs are moving to Omaha with the closing of a Union Pacific railroad office in St. Louis, Missouri. U-P CEO Dick Davidson says they’ll move in as soon as a big new headquarters building is finished in Omaha, later this year. The “Help Wanted” sign will be out in Omaha and western Iowa, as at least 20-percent of the St. Louis workers are expected to decline to move when the jobs are moved. Davidson says the company’s “on track” to begin moving people into the 260-Million-dollar U-P center, and the move should be complete by August or September. Once the workers are all in place, Davidson says UP will have about 8000 workers in Nebraska, some 4500 of them in Omaha. Among the 1-thousand-38 jobs being moved from St. Louis are about 300 in computer information technology, jobs expected to pay 70-thousand dollars a year. Other jobs, on the trains and in the switching yards, will pay 30- to 40-thousand dollars a year.
