ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Sen. Charles Schumer says he was initially alarmed by news that Xerox plans to split into two different publicly traded companies, but that he’s been assured by the company’s current CEO that the change won’t impact thousands of jobs in Rochester.

The New York Democrat tells The Associated Press that he spoke with Xerox Chairwoman and CEO Ursula Burns on Friday. He says Burns says the company’s reorganization is not expected to lead to any reductions in positions at the company’s document technology business based in Rochester.

Nonetheless, Schumer says he will watch the changes at Xerox “like a hawk” and will find ways to encourage Xerox to protect the jobs if necessary.
