Insider says new round of layoffs will impact senior mngrs, mngrs that have not met the production facility level requirements and inflated numbers are on the top of the list.
I had to laugh when I noticed under the company info for UP on this site, it listed the number of employees as 40,000, more like under 30,000 now and going lower with every cut. Sad to see a what this company, that many of us were proud to say we... — read more
