Ninety people are about to spend their last day at work at Dunedin's Hillside rail workshop.
Prime Minister John Key says the Government pushed hard for the KiwiRail's workshops to be kept open.
Labour's Clare Curran says she doesn't believe claims the Government didn't instruct KiwiRail to go for the lowest-cost bidder.
The Government decided a year ago to close KiwiRail's Hillside workshops, Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull says.
Staff at Dunedin's threatened Hillside Engineering Workshops expect to learn more about the fate of their jobs next week.
KiwiRail's Hillside workshops in Dunedin must be kept open, Labour says. The company has put the workshops up for sale and is considering closing them if a buyer can't be found.
