Don’t throw rocks if you live in a glass palace! There throwing them at you guys. What are you going to do about it is the question. We all now the rant we all know there a bunch of spineless f—s that couldn’t slither out of a paper bag. . Anybody ever watch 12 monkeys?
No location is safe no matter what the numbers are the glass palace thinks everyone is an unnecessary cost and no value added at this point. The only way this gets better is if the stock tanks and they clean the glass palace out and get people in position that know how to run a railroad like it’s supposed to be run customers and employees first, and not stockholders first and worrying about the otr being under some bull$hit magical number that’s not feasible to run long term on.
"So more than likely North Platte is safe. I knew we were short on machinist as it is, we even have great numbers in system that's why. Even Jeremy Moore was there this week if I will find out tonight why. Maybe its time to feel more secure. "
Feel how you want, but remember that Morrill was leading the pack in terms of numbers and they were the first shop to be closed. Go ahead and buy that new truck, house, camper, and/or boat with all of that new found security, no one genuinely gives a sh!t when the bank comes around repoing their stuff that you rent from them until the loan is paid for. The sh!tshow is far from over, NP hasn't been touched in 2 quarters. We are far from safe. Also, regarding the rumor that people will be getting called back... Webber tried that last summer, you don't see his sh!t in the glass palace anymore now do you?
Don’t ever think that. You can probably breathe a little easier but things can change in a heartbeat. They could close the shop on a whim and not think twice about it. Highly unlikely but it’s been happening.

It didn’t have any verbiage other that “resign” and “terminate employment”
That is who they were targeting though
I thought it was only for guys who were eligible to retire
I was denied in San Antonio. Letter said “your location has reached the maximum number of retirements/resignations available.”
Plot twist- I was the only one who applied from my location. Tf. Why even post at our location if there was no chance?
Welcome to the UP 🤡show.
We only want the people to resign that we want to resign. No others. Good roll by high ball it
UP is my favorite little vacation destination. I’m on vacation every time i clock in. I quit a long time ago.
Same thing happened in ft worth. Everyone denied.
My request to resign was denied too. I can’t believe they didn’t foresee what I’m about to do to them. Oh well. I tried to let em off easy
if you don't have another job lined up, by all means stick around until they lay you off and get unemployment. but seriously if you have another job offer who gives a c-ap about vacation? you're going to determine the future of whatever career you go into based on one or two months extra pay? i guess you could use the vacation time to look for another job, but i'd rather just find one and quit. some extra vacation time would mean nothing to my decision.
Please men don’t give the company pleasure of the vacation deal, they always dangle a check in front of you and most take it. You’ve earned unemployment among other things. Make them work to get rid of us, god knows they want things easy. Don’t take it in the starfish, and battle.
North Platte needs to lose about 300 craft people. The way they fudge the numbers on sign offs. It's about time they get hit. Welcome to PSR NORTH PLATTE
The most famous clowns in history:
1) Union Pacific leadership
3) Ronald McDonald
They are trying to get people to quit so they don’t have to have the bad press from actually going through with the layoffs, the notice is from the glass palace and they definitely approved of it. 3,000 people are going to lose their job this year don’t do the dirty work for the glass palace force them to lay you off then you get insurance for 4 months and unemployment quit you get nothing but the vacation pay
I thought they’d already layed off a boatload in Np
In accordance with the January 20, 2020 notice Posted I am hereby submitting my application Indicating my willingness to terminate employment by no later than February 12, 2020, and accepting payment in leiu of my 2021 vacation.
That is the first paragraph of the contract. In legal terms You do not have to resign unless you accept the payment. If they don’t provide it, you aren’t binded to the agreement
If they didn’t want employees at N.P to take the Vacation buyout management should have never posted the offer
If north platte got the post and Omaha rejected , shame on them for being phuuuucking liars! Absolutely dirty and unethical for a major u.s employer to operate in this manor
They didnt want people to resign from north platte.
