The Danish rail service DSB will cut 200 jobs representing one fifth of its administrative personnel in Copenhagen in January 2009. In a press release on 13 January DSB announced that 200 employees of the administrative personnel working at DSB are to be made redundant. The employees were informed in the beginning of November that a number of redundancies would take effect in January. Through negotiations the railway union HK Transport og Jernbane succeeded in saving 100 jobs out of 300 originally announced. On 13 January the employees were informed about the names of the redundant employees. Job cuts will mainly take place at Headquarters and the maintenance division both in Copenhagen. The persons in question are offered six month extra pay and consultancy support. Copenhagen Police are interested in taking over a small number of the adminitrative staff.
