I apologize if this is perhaps off-topic because I see that vaccine mandate is currently in focus.__I didn’t come to UP that long ago and yesterday I learned from a colleague that he had been furloughed five times over the years. I couldn't believe... — read more

When the $hitty contract finally rolls around and you see the peanuts they're giving you and the conditions they have forced on you the past 2-3 years, try growing a pair of ba--s and finally vote it down. They take and take and take and then throw... — read more
No law was written, therefore it can not be vetoed by congress. There can be no legal accountability for not following directions. Why is UP mandating this? It is not enforcing the law, it is proceeding at its own recourse. The unions need to... — read more

What used to take me 1 hour will now take me 4+ hours for pick ups and set outs. I have to be 100% rule compliant. This post made me laugh, but it really is like this. I have nothing against the rules. I'm just worried about the rules that are... — read more
So what's the definition of it as it pertains to Labor Laws? Sounds like its an out for the company because they aren't saying your fired.
What if the carrier WANTS a sizeable (especially trainmen) to become medically disabled very quickly? That way the carrier can begin with single man crews practically over night. All the while blaming the non vaxxers.
Federal contractor or not is this whole deal supposed to be going through collective bargaining for agreement employees or not? Nccc contract updates all say we have made no viable proposals worth considering and are overpaid and under worked. Are... — read more

Do many still really think that after all those who refuse the vaccine and leave UP, this will continue to be 'business as usual' as someone here said? I am not optimistic that it will ever be 'business as usual' again and I think more and more that... — read more
Stand side by side with your union brothers at Southwest Airlines and Amtrak.
How about we all call in sick on the railroad.
Look at last years COLA increases for the pension. Tier 2 is only .4%. It shrinks with inflation each and every year. Biden is borrowing from your hard work to pay for refugees and lazy people. Tier I Benefit 1.3% Tier II Benefit 0.4%
I just got my email on my up. Its official.
It is time to help out union brothers out!!! STAND TOGETHER!!! https://www.newsweek.com/working-class-americans-are-standing-themselves-left-denouncing-them-opinion-1637577
They also did their first major layoffs last year. Now they’re like Union Pacific complaining nobody wants to work.
Must be too much truth leaking out.
How will UP celebrate? Perhaps another tasteless locomotive?
If this has been a hard-to-bear job so far, with higher inflation it will become unbearable. I intend to leave, I hope to get another offer as soon as possible. Do you think inflation will drive greater attrition here?
Religious or medical exemption will require weekly testing. Got word from our craft's General Chairman today. Thought I would pass it along. Not sure when they plan on announcing it or any other details.
The place was full of cr-p and is flooding out onto the streets now. Watch out for slips trips and falls
I’m sick of how they take employees for granted. It's as if they think that the strategy of 'hire, squeeze, get rid of' will forever succeed in filling their pockets. That strategy hasn’t changed in years, but I hope it finally comes to an... — read more

You can't tell me that the management's behavior is normal or justified by the end results. They continue to willingly destroy the workforce for no reason. What do they gain out of it? I'm not even talking about cuts, but everything else they've done... — read more
