will we continue to see more executives quitting and or getting fired? the rats are jumping off the ship it seems.
Our unions are a disgrace allowing the company to go several years past due on our contracts. Then when we do get our contracts finally approved, the first portion is a penny raise so the company doesn't have to pay us back pay. Get it figured out... — read more
People say this with wonder, ‘profit before employees’, as if it used to be different? Profit has always been more important than employees here at UP and I don’t think anything has changed there.
How many people would come back here? My opinion is that not only will most of the people who are furloughed not return to UP, but the company will lose a lot of people who are still here expecting a pay raise in vain. Perhaps UP should consider... — read more
Is anyone feeling good here except those at the top?
The company is in miserable shape and its reputation is very bad. However, there are still excellent workers here who are characterized as very bad workers due to the reputation of the whole company. I knew that there were such prejudices but now... — read more

Has anyone heard any news regarding the return of furlough mechanical employees? Is so, how many per craft and why the return? Did they get a new contract or is it that Colton can’t handle the extra work that was taken away from Los Angeles?
That is all.
Sometimes I really wonder how UP still somehow works, but anything is possible as long as there are those of us who are still here and continue to work under constant burnout. As long as there are people who will agree to such poor working... — read more
We’ll see how it goes. UP might actually have to abide by the law and the contract. From the article: A district court judge ordered Union Pacific on Thursday to continue its employment in Palestine as required by a prior judgement. As for what... — read more
It’s absurd, yet comical how dysfunctional it is.
UP not going to like this.
I’m still not sure if I would apply for jobs outside of this industry. However, it seems that I will have to because I have sent out a lot of applications and so far I haven't had much success in looking for a new job. How many job applications have... — read more
