Can the fired foreman from North Platte still pick up a Thanksgiving turkey? Its going to be a very merry Christmas as well. Happy holidays to all. Plan on running full force.
Is not looking good. VP Big Tom is targeting Houston for a shutdown. Apparently because it has too many people and because it is in close proximity to other shops in the area. Any words on this.
this means we can now officially say 9 out of 10 UP employees don't approve of the CEO or the direction the company is going. I did see one new five star review from November 05 from an "AVP in Omaha". At least they're being honest when leaving... — read more
They told us they were only going to buy the basic tear away safety vests now. They won't buy us the reflective striped tee shirts or winter jackets any longer. What a way to get creative and save a few dollars.
Just curious how much UP is spending on the big boy restoration and all these tours across the country? Also, what's the point? Is it to just counteract the negative publicity from all the layoffs? how long are they going to keep this up? Hard to... — read more
Big Boy, including the Bush loco is sitting in Palestine Yard as we speak. Practically the whole of downtown was inaccessible due to the train nuts. The steam locomotive blew two puffs to congratulate the few shop employees left in the shop. What a... — read more
It was about four months ago I was furloughed from UP. They say there are seven stages of death with the last being acceptance and the first denial. I learned the hard way its almost the same when you lose your job. I kept asking myself why this... — read more
I better be getting a big bonus this year. With all of these cut sure is hard to stay jolly.
So the big boy will be in NLR next week to draw attention away from the fiasco that is PSR and to distract the fact that they are going to lay-off before Christmas once again maybe even before Thanksgiving (so they won’t have to give out as many... — read more
Lol wut? I love this quote. Who are these mysterious employees that understand that? They exist only in the mind of the UP spokesman. The UP PR machine working on overdrive. I guess if you can't get your ceo rating above 11% or the company rating... — read more
You want to fix problems, you don't need psr. You can be the most important person at a location, screw sh*t up daily, cost the company money due to your short comings, be dumb as hell, how you ask?? Simple who is your family. And don't worry, they... — read more
He stated at least two more yrs before PSR LEVELS OUT. He further stated substantial changes will occur thru 2020, 2021 will be harder to find chAnges. So folks TEY AND ADM MGRS ETC ITS NOT OVER ROVER STAY TUNED
Two guys were walking with their tails between their legs. It was then that I realized that one was the guy that suggested everyone sell their stock $14/share ago like he did.. and the other guy followed his suggestion.

Dont think for one minute your job is safe, chances are its not. PSR has only skimmed the top of the surface, expect another 1200 to be gone by Christmas. Make no mistake PSR is an Ocean and what you know about it is a drop of rain. Word of advice... — read more
