Thread regarding Union Pacific Corp. layoffs

What's the catch with the bonus?

Rumor was the bonus was an advance on future back pay from contract. Give us a thousand now and don’t get anything when the new contract gets shoved down our throat.

There is a lot of controversy about the bonus, but is it possible for this to happen?
I’m interested in what you think about what @hzb+183AWmTo wrote in another thread here.

Bonus all ready paid, if you didn’t get it you did not qualify. Contractual agreement back pay went away with previous contract. Therefore there won’t be any forth coming in a potential new agreement.

It seems a lot of people got ticked off about the bonus. They were happier without it. Strange.

Make a public statement about giving out a covid bonus to employees, and not pay it due to negative feedback? Yeah I'm sure that'll go over real well. I'm interested in knowing how you know it was canceled. Are you the same guy that said the unions denied it as well? A company of this size, DOES NOT make a statement of that caliber, not follow through with it, and expect there to be no serious repercussions from it.

That was cancelled this morning due to the negative feedback. Thanks. I could have used the money.

Anyone heard when this bonus payout was supposed to occur?

The catch is to make sure you're backside is lubed up good. Everything the UP does has always been a surprise to everyone. I can't remember when the UP was very clear on much of what they said. Could it be to offset the contract pay? Maybe! Could it be that they genuinely care about the worker? Maybe, but less likely though. My opinion is everyone had better be prepared for anything. Myself and many more can't trust this company.

I think this is a fake rumor started by someone to stir up the workers. A bonus is just that...a bonus. This should be in addition to your pay, not a bargaining chip in a union contract. Like everyone else on this forum, I have no proof, this is just my opinion.
