How many of you tough guys are going to walk away from a job where you can write your own check, and literally do nothing but show up and lean on your box for 16 hours? Mandate = Getting rid of some toxic people. Thanks Joe
With all the bs going on I know in the BRC contract it states we cannot strike, yet we have been pushed to the way side during this whole plandemic while busting a-s to keep things moving. We strike for better pay and finally get a contract passed... — read more
I saw some old pictures of us together. Now I’m feeling the pain. Why does it always end in sadness. I’m barely hanging on.
Unbelievable how many posts are deleted for spreading truth. Looks like the UP side gets it as well and is speaking up. When people’s lives have been destroyed by this company in large part because of coworker actions they should be called out... — read more
Everybody is leaving or trying to find a way to leave. Even the new hires who've never worked in their lives before are seeing the writing on the wall and leaving as soon as they can. Nobody sane wants to stay here longer than they have to. At this... — read more
Never forget the people you worked with that caused your job because of their ignorance. Thank you for hiring unqualified worthless people
what is everyone going to do if they mandate vaccines? going to quit? do it? try to go on strike? what’s everyone’s thoughts?
Well all the rumors are true Resource Protection started cutting jobs yesterday in Topeka and Vancouver Washington. A small number to start. 7 employees were either fired or offered positions somewhere else. I know because I am one of them on the... — read more
Why why why would I refer anyone to come work for a company that has caused so much pain a grief for families who once thought this to be a life long career job and now are biting their fingernails waiting for the news of another layoff, ship... — read more
Rumor has it Interbay has been sold to either Port of Tacoma or Sound Transit for 90 million. Good luck with finding jobs there and remember the company appreciates you and sc--w your mortgages and families!
How satisfied are you with the severance pay? I am quite unprepared in case they tell me that I am no longer needed, so severance pay is my last hope and that I will be able to find a new job quickly. I hope there haven't been any changes to... — read more
Does anyone know what the scale of the layoffs will be? Someone said that smaller shops would be eliminated - is that correct? Does anyone have more details about that?
Has anyone heard of any more layoffs or is BNSF finally done laying off for the time being?
Most the guys laid off have absolutely zero skills in anything and are desperately trying to cling to the company like those fish that feast on shark parasites. Freaking hilarious. Giant group of losers. Have fun making less while working more you... — read more
I'm wondering if people who were laid off can reapply for other positions within the company? A former coworker is having trouble finding employment months after being cut and is now considering reapplying here. I think that might put his severance... — read more
Red river division is not loosing any more carman. I want to believe that to be true but there are also those who claim the opposite and who think the Red River Division is next. However, there is no additional information. How much truth is... — read more
Keep date in mind
RFE laid off today. Some kept job. Majority of them forced to mark up.
Apparently Interbay just lost 2nd and 3rd shifts!! They are only running 1st shift now. Layoffs continue and it's not over yet. Red River Division is next.
Make sure you know what you're walking into. This entire industry is in shambles right now so if you're leaving BNSF to join another railway I doubt you'll see a significant (if any) improvement in your working conditions. All railways are currently... — read more
Since being laid off in February, I have found a job not only making more money than I ever would with the railroad, but also a work at place I make my own schedule, never work weekends and don’t miss anything with my family anymore. Really it’s my... — read more
This is a layoff information site not a feelings/venting site.
I know a bunch of folks who left BNSF either on their own or were forced out and every one of them is now in a better position than they were while working here. All of them were able to find new jobs and most with better pay. But what every one of... — read more
I know everybody and their grandmother are worried about layoffs right now, but there is a simple way to reduce the level of stress for similar situations in the future: create your own job security by making yourself easily employable. Work on your... — read more
I feel it's a bit immature when people say they do the bare minimum, brag about not doing work and then complain when they get furloughed. I’ve been working hard from the beginning and will continue to do so all the time, until I find something... — read more
Did anything happened yet? Was it just rumors you guys freaking over? Let start another one to worry about.....
As a railroad electrician I am pretty confident that I will have trouble finding another solid job for a long time to come. I can’t complain much, my life choices have put me in a situation to be stuck here. I hope I can find something before the... — read more
The bigger problem than layoffs and the number of people sent home is how decisions are made about who will be the target. Instead of cutting slackers, lazy people, no, they cut those who work hard and do a great job. How is that possible? Are... — read more
Shop closures. If you’ve been following , BN had followed their lead since last year. Get ready
I got laid off a few months ago and so far so good. I wasn’t particularly unhappy when I got laid off because I think I would definitely leave the company on my own. I couldn’t stand the amount of work anymore since we were short on workers. How... — read more
I think layoffs are inevitable, and in that case I hope it happens sooner than later. The uncertainty is awful. How do they expect me to work if I constantly think about cuts? With all that, although I'm sorry for the people to whom work here still... — read more
Bnsf or the union rep isn't the problem. Part of the other problem is these worthless employees lazy a-s, smart phones eye glued, saying not my job, sitting in the break room, with no real work effort bad rep., and unable to do the simple job, no... — read more
I hated that I used to stress over losing my job. It got to a point that it affected my health. Then a year ago I said enough of this cr-p. I started to minimize my expenses to the bare bones which in turn bolstered my emergency funds. I’m at a point... — read more
Who actually believes them layoffs at gunna happen Wednesday????
furloughs. These are permanent cuts. No one’s ever getting called back. When your cut you’re done. And thanks to wonderful back channel union handies, you’ll fall off the rosters by a years time and be vanished from the system completely. Don’t fall... — read more
I personally no longer have any motivation to work here. How do they expect people to give their best while at the same time fearing for their existence and knowing that they may lose their jobs next month? That hard work is worth something - we... — read more
I always hope for the best, but I prepare for the worst. Judging by the atmosphere in the company, I don’t remember there ever being this much tension, and I’ve been working here for over 6 years. I started looking for a new job and at the same time... — read more
