UP To Pivot To Growth?

https://www.trains.com/trn/news-reviews/news-wire/analysis-union-pacific-pivots-into-growth-mode/

How are you going to "Pivot to Growth" when you don't have enough employees to handle growth? Either the operating ratio is going up, or your job is about to get a lot more difficult.

Sadly it probably won't change at all. It sounds promising, but they've been coming up with little sayings for nearly three years since PSR started. They want to pivot to growth? Isn't that what they've been doing? So why make an article and publicly state it now? The CEO also stated that he wanted to be transparent in his actions? Has ANYONE seen ANY transparency? They can make articles all they want. I'm not going to believe any of them. That executive team has done NOTHING for the company or for the men and women that actually run it. REMEMBER THIS - Always listen to what they say, but watch what they do.

Uhh we don’t have any power for trains so let’s put more in storage. The logic of this company is insane. Im pretty sure it is being ran by people who should be institutionalized.

pivot to growth sounds like something the HR department would say. something catchy that means nothing.

Who is gonna lead this pivot to growth??? Lance is too stupid, he's done nothing but shrink this company. Customers are still leaving in droves for trucking because its reliable and cheaper. Nothing like leaving a unit train sit at a customer for 3 days which blocked 2 other trains from spotting all because we couldn't find power to move it.

I agree 100%. What I think they're saying is we've cut as much as we can, now we're going to force even more work on our employees and make their jobs more of a living he-l then it already is. Operating ratio will cost them money. On the other hand, forcing more work on you is free. Guess which one they're more likely to opt for?

When you can't show that the O.R. is going down anymore because you have cut everywhere to the bone, then you need an excuse of why the O.R. starts going back up. That's why. It's all a smoke show and how you present it to others. If you present to the public as "well we cut the fu** out of our employees so we can drive the stock price up, and now that it's up as far as we think we can get it and we have cut employees and safety out so much we are having a difficult time even operating so we have to start hiring back now" doesn't sound as good as " we are going to transition into growth now, we want to grow this company". It's all in how you present it. Just like PSR BS. Imagine if they stood up told the public that " we are going cut out safety and fu** over as many employees as we think possible and then maybe a few more just to drive the stock price up then dump all our stock and retire".
