Thread regarding Union Pacific Corp. layoffs

Many advise not giving notice

P certainly doesn't appreciate nor value professionalism, but again, leaving without notice?
Lately, two of my colleagues have left that way. Why do many here give such advice?
I’d love to just leave and forget I’ve ever worked here, but I still think it’s very bad not to give notice.

I gave notice and was immediately walked out. They paid me for the time up until the last day I notified them of. Immediately, I had Union Officers running around telling the other employees that I had been fired and that there was nothing they could do for me. Found this out from good friends who called me to ask what happened. It is funny, the ones who are supposed to be helping you are trying to convince you that UPRR is the only place you have to work when the reality is that the Union is actually holding you back if you have reasonable intelligence and any kind of work ethic. Leaving UPRR is the best thing I have ever done and there isn't a chance in h e ll that I would ever go back or recommend the company, much less the outhouse of a town that North Platte is.

ONLY give notice IF you can afford to not have a job during your proposed notice period.

ALL to often you'll be escorted out as soon as you give notice and if you were counting on the income from that period you'll probably find yourself short.

Reputable companies will pay you the two weeks and still send you home, others just want you gone because they feel you're a two week long liability

Seen workers give 2 week notice and get sent home before the 2 weeks is up. So my advise is at least leave when you want to. Not when the company walks you out.

What does listing UP on a resume have to do with giving notice. All your new employer is going to do if anything is call the UP hr line and all they’re going to do is verify the dates you worked at UP. Maybe if your next job is bagging groceries in North Platte and the owner knows the local UP manager he might call to ask if you gave notice but otherwise it doesn’t matter.

It depends on if you want to use UP as experience on your resume or job application. Don’t believe the BS nonsense that employers praise you for not giving UP a notice or praise you for leaving UP. Most of the general public, including other organizations hiring managers know nothing about how this company is ran or the working conditions. If you think UP will let you go when you give notice, just be prepared for this and be thankful you are hopefully moving on to a better job.

Has the UP ever given notice that you'll be laid off? I just don't see why this is so hard for folks to understand. In a normal situation, you would give a notice of your intentions to leave a company. The UP is not a normal company. I've heard from many people that left the company with no notice given about how their current employer has praised them for leaving the UP. The UP really doesn't have a good reputation with the general public right now, and that same general public is starting to see through their BS propaganda. So why do the right thing for a company that won't do the right thing for you?

I know a guy who gave 2 wk notice. 2 days later boss called , said to give keys , Up stuff to local mgr and go home for good. Why show any loyalty or consideration to Up , they don’t show any to us. We’re aren’t family, just an employee number.
