Topics regarding layoffs at Union Pacific Corp.

Where have they cut the most?

I would really like to know what parts of the company have been hit the hardest with layoffs this year and what parts could be most impacted by layoffs in the remaining part of 2019. Any idea? Any predictions?

Are the cuts over? Or have they just begun?

Does anyone have any concrete information on this subject? It feels like this company is stuck in limbo and everyone is just rolling with the punches. I have noticed alot of attitude changes towards different crafts and employees, more of a positive... —  read more

Agreement employees are screwed

After listening to our executives brag about how they have reduced the workforce by 8% so far this year and that they want to be at 10%- the writing is on the wall. Here’s the kicker though, everyone asking questions pushed them to do more and... —  read more

Using someone else’s logic

Using another poster’s logic from yesterday saying psr is a failure as evidenced by the stock drop, today’s big rise shows it to be a successful plan. The q2 4% increase in profits due to an operating ratio hovering around 60, is a positive sign... —  read more

Roseville car dep

It will be sad to go when my number is called. I have sacrificed a lot for this company. It's sad that some college kid who punches numbers and hides injuries from the FEDS to get his bonus on the hard work of others gets to stay.

What locations could be impacted next?

I know it’s hard to tell, especially in this situation where layoffs and furloughs are happening left and right, but is there any talk or rumors regarding where layoffs could strike next and what locations could be impacted?

Proviso is a circus right now.

Flat switching is going horrible right now. Venas contract needs to get terminated. Conductors furloughed. More Carmen furloughs are coming soon. This is a hump yard. No way around it. Automate the hump and let us railroad!!! You got rid of that... —  read more

It's not to late

What ever happened to the people that would know how to run the company that started from the bottom and worked there way up . After all that's how America became strong . Not some CEO that never worked for the railroads.

Why not retire if you can?

I never understand why people who are eligible to retire just keep hanging around. And most of them are always complaining about the conditions too. We had a coworker who retired and actually takes home more per month on retirement with the two... —  read more

Not looking forward to earnings report

I realized there is really nothing for us to look forward to on July 18. There is no best case scenario for us here - no matter how well or badly Union Pacific is doing, the answer will always be layoffs. The only thing we can guess is how bad... —  read more

Why is it being handled differently this time?

In the last round of layoffs director and MM2 furloughed in seniority order. Multiple CDL/DOT qualified members held support track jobs but were furloughed anyway! Why is it being handled differently this time?

More productive is not going to save your job

You really think being more productive is going to save your job. It's a money game. The only way that they'll stop with these layoffs is if that stock price go down. What sense does it make to layoff people when you're not getting your numbers and... —  read more

Who are Managers managing?

They keep laying off employees who actually do the work but keep all the Managers, Directors. It is getting that each Manager is managing two employees. Now that s efficiency! Makes no sense?
