Thread regarding Union Pacific Corp. layoffs

@Everybody: Railroad “police” aren’t sworn law enforcement officers. They have no formal powers of arrest. They’re private security guards. Technically, UP “police” can’t even detain you. They are not going to solve the theft problem, because they don’t have the manpower, tools, or legal authority to do so.

When you see criminal activity, take a video and call the local police. That’s essentially what UP security does anyway.

Every decision the executive team made in regards to operations, made everything worse! When they announced the layoffs of the special agents, WHAT THE HE-L DID THEY THINK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN??? All I can say, is that Fritz is going to own this one. His stellar decision making is what led up to this. Oh yeah don't forget about Vena! He's the other sh1thead who thought layoffs were a great idea too.

This LA area theft is not a local LEA problem, UP has special agents, if they want to fix this PR nightmare they have the power to address it. Local LEA's don't even have the resources to deal with residential thefts, so shifting resources to assist a company that has their own police powers is foolish.

Right before the last UPPD mass firing, some Omaha genius broke down the amount of time special agents spend on various tasks... They decided that SA's spend most of their time inspecting for container pilferage. They then decided that such a task was not suitable for a certified police officer and much more suited to a security guard. They of course removed that task from their duties. Once that time consuming task was removed, the Omaha genius then decided that they had an overabundance of SA's to perform the remaining tasks and did what Omaha genius's do best, they eliminate jobs. Well, the results were as expected. The Omaha genius never did hire security guards to inspect for pilferage and thus pilferage went thru the roof. The Omaha genius then decided to have the SA's again inspect for pilferage but failed to rehire the required SA's. So now we have out of control pilferage.

The railroad have police departments. The problem is that most of officers have been laid off or quit due to bad policies and management.
I don’t know why shipper have not taken their business else where to make sure their customers merchandise makes it to destination.

Judging by the news coming out of LA, U.P. needs to hire a few hundred special agents! I am sure the container theft will continue to grow and spread to other areas. The company also needs to protect the the train crews, and engineering employees.
How can they even run trains over that mess?

They didn’t fire them they furloughed. They shouldn’t be hiring at a lower pay rate if they follow the contract. If they are everyone should walk.

I’ll explain it. They fired people that were making more money, and now they’re hiring new people that they’ll pay less.

Can someone explain how sending men home with15 and plus years for psr to save money for a year or two and then having to hire new people and train them was a good idea ?! How long does it take to be a knowledgeable employee ? How much does it cost to get them there? They lost a lot of experience you can’t just replace overnight. Glad they sent me home there are jobs out there that treat you way better (like a human) for those that are still there. I wish y’all the best.

I'm going to try and respond, but I don't want the spelling B champion hurting my feelings. Anywho, yea let's cut to the bone and no try and fill the jobs. I'm sure everyone furloughed due to PSR are dying to come back. Dear spelling B champion I hope I didn't misspell a word and made you proud 😊

Don’t understand open jobs. After they sent some 11,000 people home the last few years. We always knew the layoffs for PSR were cut too deep in the numbers.

And I wouldn’t recommend a single one to anybody. Last I heard only 16% of UP employees would recommend working here.
