Does anyone know what departments/union jobs will be cut next? Heard more cuts are coming by February? Does this new "pay by performance " Lance Fritz announced for February, a way of saying managers and employees will lose pay?
Focus on the politics at hand within the UPRR. Drop the gov politics they don't control the UPRR business. UPRR is a gov all in it's own. I called them a communist government for a long time. I expected to be a lifer like others in my family... read more
heard from within the executive suite a massive layoff across California is coming. does anyone know what that would mean? the executives were cheering and patting each other on the backs after the planning meetings
I do not want to be laid off. Yet, there are many rumors about potential job cuts here in Omaha.
Isn’t it funny how as soon as they had gotten an extension for having PTC installed and active from the government, they closed at least one shop installing PTC, that I know of? All that extension did was save them a crap ton of money and get them no... read more
Does anyone know what union jobs are up next to be cut this year?
Watch the quarterly reports that Lance fritz has its pretty obvious where they are going with the cuts. Another thing to look at is the railroads section 6 notice to the unions. The railroads want to contract as much work our as possible, so I would... read more
Does anyone know what union jobs will be cut at UPRR and when?? I thought they were supposed to complete the other 250 workers by September 30th, and clearly that hasn't happened.
I would like to hear from the machinist and electrician technicians that lost their positions for the sake of the all mighty share holders/lance fritz’s Bank account
Does anyone know what union jobs will be cut? Are the other 250 agreement employees being notified at the last minute. Sept 30th is almost here.
Things are being lined up for the next merger.
Do we know if the last round of layoffs is over? It would be nice to be able to relax a little bit, after weeks filled with anticipation and stress. Union Pacific used to be an enjoyable place to work at, but lately, with potential layoffs always... read more
It started out Monday at 107.30 and currently sits at 112.33. I am so glad the shareholders are being looked after, whatever would they do if they couldn't make money from the plight of the people having there livelihoods castrated right in front of... read more
I can give a little more insight into departments affected. IT took the biggest hit, >20% reduction across the board. Safety / UP Police also took a giant hit, not sure of the numbers. M&S and Operating may have also been high, but far less than... read more
Titles and ages were listed on a sheet of paper in the severance packet for those being laid off involuntarily. As of right now, this is only in the Marketing and Sales Department. Another chaotic situation orchestrated by a severely disconnected... read more
That's what I heard but I am not sure if this is true or not. Has anyone recently had this experience? I left Union Pacific back in 2014 on my own and I hear that things are not going that well. I hope things improve but looking at what's going on... read more
All departments people are getting title changes. SMTO gone, foreman generals gone, I'm sure every other department is going to get hit. I've even heard they're doing away with most of the car foreman positions.
We are currently cut to the bone at our shop and service track! The only thing that is fully manned is PTC installations. Where there were 4-5 there is now 1, left to do the work of a shop full. We totally understand cutting costs for profitability... read more
15 years ago, the company was an awesome place to work at but nowadays, I wouldn't work for that place unless I was homeless. What really bothers me about the place is how they change the employees brain patterns, My so-called friends seem to be... read more
They can't hire and then keep any train service personnel right now. 8 terminals trying to hire and nothing but trash and train buffs. UP will be merged out in years to come. The place s---s!
I'm sorry to hear this news for all of you affected. Focus on the politics at hand within the UPRR. Drop the gov politics they don't control the UPRR business. UPRR is a gov all in it's own. I called them a communist government for a long time. I... read more
A multi billion dollar company more concerned about the share holders and upper management making money, rather than appreciating the folks that show up every day to help safely move the product the customer is paying to have moved by rail. It is... read more
I've been with the railroad industry over 35 years, and yes I fit into this category of potential candidates for "early retirement" . Lately I've been hearing a phrase that sums up Lance Fritz. " It's only business, nothing personal." That's the... read more
500 jobs will be management positions and 250 union jobs. They're trying to reach 500 by offering early retirement to those who are 55 years old with 30 years of service. They're also offering up to a year's salary to quit. If they don't get 500 then... read more
They want more for less, the word is out this place s---s to work for, how management treats it's employees, how they write you up for such petty stupid things just so they meet their 40 failures a month quota. When they did that integrity went right... read more
I've read that most of the layoffs will be management positions but I can't find any info on what other areas will be hit. We are not being told anything, so I've been scouring the web, but to no avail. Anybody has any info? I would really appreciate... read more
I feel sorry for the friends I have that work for UP, I will never go back and work for a company that puts investor profits well over safety. As an arsa supervisor I have witnessed how much that talk a good fight then shove a spike maul up your a--!... read more
I hate this job at Union Pacific- I am on call 24/7 which is hard but when you know that your manager is not appreciating it you'd wish that they lay off. We had massive rumors about large-scale layoffs - this panned out true but it's not as someone... read more
Its about time they start cutting in the glass palace. We've been dealing with it for years out in the field. Time for a reality check folks!!!
It's all part of their G55 program to get down to a 55 % operating cost. This program is cutting everything to the bare minimum,employees, train inspections,crew rest,track repairs,car repairs and the public safety.I wonder what kind of bonuses they... read more

Are they laying off train engineers conductors in the state of arkansas? My nephew works there the past 11 years.
Things are happening right now - just like the rumors we heard, 500 managers will be laid off. Plus 250 workers in addition to that - overall 750 people will lose jobs. But nobody asks about fat bonuses executives continue to receive while we all... read more
What's the latest news on a layoff at headquarters? I keep hearing rumors about restructuring and potentially a layoff in the coming months.
UP took care of their fat cats over the past 10 years with millions of dollars in options, healthcare to 65 and early retirement. What a joke.
RULE 1.6 is not a law nor a rule former Conductors from Forth Worth Service Unit and Livonia service unit sued Union Pacific. Union Pacific settled the conductors claim from the Livonia Service unit without prejudice and quickly. Conductor was paid... read more
I never thought that we'll see this but we might have layoffs here in Omaha.
If you are an employee and are vested the time is now to dump the stock. This stock is about to take a nose dive. $62.00 a share if not lower.
