Rio Tinto May Divest Assets

Rio Tinto Cuts 800 Staff

Rio Tinto announced that it is preparing to shed as many as 800 staff and contractors from its WA iron ore division, extending the wave of cost-cutting and job losses in the WA iron ore industry. It is understood the cuts will primarily target technical and administrative roles, with some job losses likely in maintenance and other support positions on mine sites. The company is also likely to cut contracts for non-essential mine site work, which it started this year with the cancellation of jobs at its Pilbara operations. The company has cut jobs in some areas over the past year but its permanent workforce has remained relatively steady through its massive export expansion. It ended 2012 with a workforce of about 12,600 and exported 233 million tonnes of Pilbara iron ore. Last year, it shipped 24% more ore, or 288.3 million tonnes, with a workforce of about 12,500. It plans to ship about 330 million tonnes this year with a reduced workforce and 350 million tonnes a year by 2017.
