Can’t find anyone else to take the job. Too many people laid off or fired

"Locally", I've seen more go back to their seniority over the last year than I have in the previous 18.
These are MOP's/MRO's etc, they're not going to get filled by "All college, no knowledge" types off the street.
Let me get this straight. You think something Union Pacific is doing is supposed to make sense? Haha good one man .
This posting makes no sense at all. Why would they be begging former managers to come back as managers? The last time I checked they didn't need more managers. They already have too many as it is, unless they plan on using them as backup cabbies. The UP needs more boots on the ground and not more people taking up space in an office somewhere
If managers still had the old pension (harriman?) on top of RR retirement, that made a big difference in accepting the stress of being a manager. But I think the biggest problem w/ management retention is the stress. 18 hr days, being called in on days off for mandatory meetings, being cussed out, interrupted, told to shut up, and being hung up on by directors, and worst of all the lying. A lot of managers know we are understaffed, cant do what needs doing, and dont bring attention to anything that is “out of the budget”. Just sweep it under the rug and act surprised if it ever pops up and cant be ignored anymore.
The managers who went back in the ranks probably know more than your college managers. You need a mixture of both to really run well.
Woke liberalism is very prevlant on this forum. Its a UP management run board..here
This company is a joke and it ain’t funny.
