Topics regarding layoffs at Union Pacific Corp.
According to Lot lizard
I currently work for Swift Trucking, debating putting my two week notice. Is UP that bad of a workplace?
Has any other yards or mechanical units been getting hit? Multiple FRA guys all over global 2 and proviso this week. Talked to one when he asked about new hure furloughs, working conditions, derails, etc. Said they're noticing a lot of high risk... read more
I’m a yard worker and a lot of people were hit by layoffs at my location. We are operating with the 60% of the capacity than we did before. Even though that’s the case, we’re still faced with the same amount of work and it is expected that we keep up... read more

Hold steady peeps! Unified Plan 2020!!!
Just a logical question, I suppose. The fact is that locomotives that are in operation are barely maned as it is. Many put out of operation. Guess that UP will have to hire more employees if it ever wants to put all of its resources in operation. We... read more
Where did the talent go? Is there any talent left? Will they be hiring any new talent? Was there ever really any talent, just wondering.
Union Pacific announces layoffs at Hinkle rail yard in Hermiston POSTED BY: JENNA KOCHENAUER MAY 21, 2019 Union Pacific plans to lay off nearly 200 positions at its Hinkle rail yard in Hermiston. According to a statement the railroad company released... read more
Did you notice that all the best employees are either gone or leaving? No one wants to work for UP anymore - not unless they really, really have to. And the ones being brought in are really cheap - which translates to inexperienced, lazy and... read more
Managers aren't stupid. They know your game plan.
Handed in my resignation. Managed to land a job at another railroad company. It was a hard process but at the end i payed off. I considered UP the company where I would reach my pension, but the time comes when one has to be honest with himself that... read more
Just ask Larry. His $5 trillion in the bank account said so. He is a great man, just ask all his puppet CEO’s like Lance Fritz, they will confirm. He is #28 on the list right now, but with your blood sweat and tears we can make him #1! Now go make... read more

Why is it on the UP website every other day it seems an employee performed some sort of heroic act? And when they take the photo of said hero or heroes there all posted up tryin to look hard, like they a somebody? Plus if you read that monthly... read more
I been with the co. for 29 yrs, 15 yrs in mechanical. can't hold a job anywhere with up. good luck in the next 6 mos. guys. there is no hope. try the lottery.
Anybody have info on when cuts will be made to MOW or which departments will be cut (track, bridge) in southern region?
Well word has come down 7 good men will be furloughed in the coming weeks.
Just wondering. I’m going on 21 years. Been thinking about putting my feelers out and see what’s out there. I’ve daylight Sat/Sun off for the past 12 years. Now due to all the cuts we’re losing weekend jobs every time they lay-off or someone quits... read more
I was a fairly high ranking, director level, employee. I walked away for another opportunity and couldn’t be happier. There is life at the end of the tunnel. Compensation and retention stock wasn't worth the damage I was doing to myself and my... read more
Fire you for getting hurt. Over working you until your health fails. Pitting worker against worker. Your ego and work ethic work against you.
Full of hot air.
Major layoffs coming. All the way across the board. North platte, Kansas City, north Little Rock Roseville
I just wanted to remind people to submit their experiences at this said company to sites like Indeed and Glassdoor. It’s good to let people know what they are getting themselves into.
https://trn.trains.com/news/news-wire/2019/05/16-big-boy-stubs-its-toe-with-derailment Sad day for the UP steam program. Thoughts and prayers.
Call me pessimistic, but I think that we will all turn out to be victims of this process in the end. Weather we’ll get laid off, furloughed, or maybe we will get overworked to the breaking point, which will make us leave on our own. All and oll there... read more
Just fire everyone, best practice of the industry right, expert in firing people. https://www.railshippers.com/event/nars-2019-annual-meeting-2/
This week multiple agreement jobs across the system were abolished and workers furloughed in B&B. IBEW and SMART mech employees were affected.
Leave UP, lave the industry, leave this whole bloody mess behind. Do you really think there is another rail company out there waiting for you with open arms? Of course not. This industry has been using and then spitting out employees for decades... read more
I thought they would lay off the AVP and two Sr DIR of locomotive to reduce layers.

What’s going on in Oregon?? Heard upper management from above still hanging around but already cut Hinkle
And if he can get laid off is that something that is done in practice? I haven’t seen that situation ever. I figure, if they wanted to cut someone they would do it right away instead of putting him on furlough.
In all honesty I can’t understand all of these changes, much less the need to go through with them in the first place. We were a good company as it is, we were profitable as it is and now we’re being stripped to the bone. Is it possible that we let... read more
Your approval rating is down from 18% to 15% on Glassdoor just within the past month. I think you are really winning the employees over.
