Supposedly vena is at north platte on Saturday henchman getting ready for cuts I'm sure
Been told managers bonus cut by 30%.
No doubt the rumors are true about Vena wiping out more than 30% of UP employees.
How are they running equipment around system.? Other places let us know in north platte they are blowing out work to get locomotives out of shop. We don't have enough people at all 2.5 crews on 3rd and 2 on 2nd days if we farm out 5 crews maybee 6 ... — read more
How is that 11 on and 4 off agreement going along in your neck of the woods.. Extra boards are being depleted and out of 13 to 15 hired, only 2 or 3 if that make training in our Terminal. So where and how much now...
What’s being done about all the open doors on container trains? Trains travel the entire system from origin to destination with co tai er doors open. Merchandise falling out or attracting thieves. Trains can’t be stopped because of velocity. ... — read more
Which yard do we want to shut down today? Let's go over the numbers with Vena. Focus on Western depots. California costs too much money. Which port do we close? Intermodel down? Can LA pickup Norcals work? What's it gonna be?

We keep getting held out of time for their precious dwell time.... how much of a bonus do these fu----s get for it?
It doesn't make sense. Stay added 8 hrs. to cover the next shift because the 1 man called off. It's dangerous. 2, 3 days in a row. My doctor says that's unhealthy for me.
No doinking your subordinates, you know who you are. No good ole boy club promotions, you know who you are. Honesty is a policy, being dishonest to your subordinates is against the rules. No dr-gs, where is the dr-g testing for... — read more
Nampa terminal posted 3 utility jobs yesterday for switch crews and cut the car dept. today.
If you think you shouldn't and UP deserves better, you're not very smart (I'd use another word but I want this post to stay up). Just start doing the bare minimum. Exactly what you're being paid for. And considering how little we're paid, that... — read more
I don’t think this site is truly anonymous… If more than 1 man takes a vacation at a time, the railroad will bust. (Why?) Ever try posting using a VPN? It won’t work… We need you to keep making it work with less…. Or we will cut you!... — read more

Great slogan for UP college fairs.
Did everyone get their Hat and Pen?
Heard today that Omaha is going to send like 75 so called “qualified” 213.9 Personel to come to the main lines, industry leads and yards with high derailments to “inspect” tracks. Please headquarters let us know how we should do are jobs. Brothers... — read more
I guess the 35% reduction post caught UP’s attention so they had it removed. Someone in headquarters doesn’t like us having the inside scoop as to what they are wanting to do. Keep an eye out for weird acting management the next several weeks. To... — read more
For years we let them cut our jobs. Continue working with the minimum. Call off work because we are tired. Some out on stress, medical. No one is replaced to do the work. Yet the job still gets done. That just shows Vena he can cut even more or even... — read more
Does U.P. still have smoking policy.Seems like since most of higher UPS smoke policy is not enforced. I guess this will be next way to ✂️ cut number of agreement employees since hardly no one took early out.
Does anyone know when the 11 and 4 is going to be implemented? I don't trust this cr-ppy SMART local in Roseville! Too many carrier butt k8ssers
Mechanical seems to be the craft Veena wants to be part of the past. So I've gotten my resume updated. Applied at several rr outfits. No one is hiring. We only have enough experience to work at Rapid Oil Change franchises. Sam's Club as a stocker. I... — read more
Why do they keep hiring? I’m sure it probably a d-mb question, but unfortunately I think logically and there isn’t any logic that I can think of to this. Can’t keep the ones they got now marked up and want to hire more. In the end people will get... — read more
Be careful of newly hired management at you facility. If they didn't move up within your facility, then they probably came from Omaha. UP has been known to scout out locations before bringing down the hammer. Do you have someone you've never seen... — read more
We had 3 retirements 2 quit and 1 about to be fired or sign away rights at north platte how about other places expecting within a few weeks now that the early authorizations at the end now
The current motto of efficiency is about to change. With near future changes to have some Engineering managers and Signal managers to expand some of the territories to eliminate a manager in the middle just seems ludicrous. They are looking at not... — read more
Any word if Desoto might get hit with any of these (mass layoffs) that are suppose to come in March? Asking for a friend.
Too many rumors about layoffs to ignore them. I guess we really can expect a bloodbath. Why can’t we know what the game is, so that we can plan accordingly? We all have families to support and bills to pay. What’s the point of keeping us in the dark?... — read more

So far I know Denver, Elko and Eugene all lost mech employees. Is there any news of more coming or what’s coming next? This company is so tight lip when it comes to up and coming events. I just want to know if I should be planning on finding other... — read more
Not college ball. It is evident that UP is falling apart. I am predicting the west getting hit the hardest. Guess the date in March?
Our RR we work in are going up all the Valley, Fresno, Martinez, other subs. Don't rush to get anywhere. No MOW no trains. God Bless!
Did anyone else receive their bonus in their bank account without a manager ever delivering your compensation letter to you or "having that conversation?" We all knew the bonuses would be subpar. Don't quit the company yet. My guess is the company... — read more
Huge layoff are in the works to hit everyone from top to bottom system wide. Before the 1st quarter report comes out, the UP will be cut again just like in 2019/2020. No way around this one. This will be considered first wave of layoffs 2024. More to... — read more
