Thread regarding Union Pacific Corp. layoffs

Agreements + Contracts = Joke @ Green River

Rula, company makes Yardmasters take 10% pay cut and work same hours. Only craft made to do so.
Now, abolishing the yardmasters craft in Green River but before doing this, trying to make the yardmasters train new MYO's to take over.
Lastly, of course the senior management of the terminal and the senior of the Rocky Mountain Service Unit can't have the audacity to let the parties involved know.
From the executive's to the management and all in between are spin less and absolutely no integrity nor morals. Karma as all I can say.
May all the others try and hopefully have a healthy and great new year for yourselves and loved one's

Yardmasters? From what OP said, it sounds your craft is being made into managers. It happened in mechanical with forman/supervisors.

They abolished a lot of YMd jobs on the Western Region and lost trains and cars.
Then they wanted train crews to do the clerks and YMs jobs.

I'll just run the train and ki-l it at 12 hours
Were is my relief crew?

“Now, abolishing the yardmasters craft in Green River but before doing this, trying to make the yardmasters train new MYO's to take over.”

What’s the plan for when the new MYOs (read: OMTs) get burnt out and leave in six months? Grab the nearest warm body and hand them a clipboard?

I have no idea how such a poorly run company can be so profitable. It defies financial gravity.

What does or does not having a college degree have anything to do with this post?

I know many people outside the railroad that make more than I do without college degrees. A degree doesn’t guarantee success. Many of my Union co/workers have them and don’t use them due to the way management is treated at this company and many others. Pretty sure this day and age if you have half a brain and a good work ethic you will do well in life. God bless America!

It all began when they ran off Frank, Oscar got fed up, Brent left before it came crashing down and now Brian is trying to run for cover.
