Was told their jobs will be absorbed by contractors and switchmen. True or not..
P certainly doesn't appreciate nor value professionalism, but again, leaving without notice? Lately, two of my colleagues have left that way. Why do many here give such advice? I’d love to just leave and forget I’ve ever worked here, but I still... — read more
Has any of you had or have used the handheld devices supplied to us to throw switches, and all that stuff? What else?
UP is again hiring in Buggersfield.....why?
Here come the contractors. Nuff said.......
Anybody who mentions liking his job gets his head bitten off in the replies. Why is it so important to you that all of us hate our jobs? I like my job. I enjoy it. I still think that this management is awful and is leading UP into ruin, but that... — read more
Costs per car is $3 to high in the Northern Region. The solution is to cut 5 starts per terminal. Brilliant. Cars are bottle necked because there aren't enough crews and power right now. Yards are plugged because cars can't leave. This leaves no... — read more
I read someone’s post about managers causing more problems than fixing and it made me laugh even though it’s actually a sad truth. UP seems to employ managers who are able to create the great complications from the smallest of problems whose... — read more
UP hiring 1400 employees this year. They say this is to improve service. Hopefully they will not be cut off. Good times!
Can’t find anyone else to take the job. Too many people laid off or fired
Most of the time we don’t have a ride at all. I love it when a plan comes together.
I am actively looking for a new job, but until I get it I have to stay in this misery for a while. Everyone has to make the best of their situation and so I wonder what is the best way to deal with a bad job until you get a better offer?
Anybody else get the strike vote letters?
How do you expect management, most of whom have never been railroaders to run this company well? Some say that a good manager does not have to have a strong technical background. I disagree. Everything would be much better if we had good managers... — read more

National Weather Service has just issued a PDS Thunderstorm warning for NW Iowa Souix City area. Expected winds will reach 105 mph this evening. How many trains is Omaha gonna let turn over in honor of the Shareholders?
Are they really fighting for us?
Just like the Bachman Turner Overdrive song , Taking Care of Business, I do that too in my job at Up. I fix things , maintain stuff , order things that people need , etc,,,,. Come to work on time and work sober. The unethical and greedy decision... — read more

Welcome to he-l
The question may sound harsh, but I’m really interested in how many of you applied for a job here thinking it would be better here than it really is, not because you didn’t have any other option. As for me, I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but I... — read more
You know it's getting bad where a Headquater track gang is just ONE man left. UP having to pay for contractors to help on local levels. So many open jobs and no one to fill them, I wonder why 🤨🤨🤨
Been seeing the crew taxis coming back to work shifts. What other locations are seeing taxis back on the job ?
It is supposed to improve network efficiency. Don’t those guys at the STB know we have a plan in place? If they’d be patient and wait till 2020 this is all going to work out. Just need to lay a few more people off and store some more power and... — read more
Did your trips take less time in hours before psr , for the same route now? Just wondering, how the rr runs after psr for a few years.
In states without right-to-work laws, religious objectors can send their dues to a charity of their choice instead. You may as well get something for that hard earned money.
To all Up non agreement reading this: what are you going to do to better satisfy the customer? Reduce rr congestion? What is the plan to improve Up and rectify the problems that the STB wants fixed. ?
(A). Brazos yard… forcing individuals to give up their property for a railyard that never came into fruition. How did he get any stock or bonus The year the corporation had to take a tax write off. How many jobs could’ve been saved? (B) Destroying... — read more
Remember when Up sent home many hundreds of good employees without a job , they used super strict medical rules Up used their own health people to look at med history of employees. Never did interview the personal Dr . to get complete health info... — read more
Kind of boring on here this week. Not many posts from managers , directors. Where are you guys?
Unions doesn't have the strength to get us our honest wage increase, boy I can't wait to see our medical package! How about the attendance policy.... we are doomed I say.
UP has finally managed to hire a young and capable person. This does not happen very often. I feel sad when I see with how some of the newbies invest so much enthusiasm into their job here. But it's hard to advice someone "don't try too hard... — read more
The stress for employees is huge and the pressure is increasing every day. Unfortunately I have no other option for now and I have to be here. I wonder if our leadership is under as much stress as most of us are, or are they stress free? Since... — read more
What happened to that program and slogan ? We should have anew 1 called sniffles an congestion coming to the USA rail network. Pick a siding , park and wait.
People deserve the right to work without self-serving bureaucracy. Government technicians and postal workers are able to opt out. Why are we not? If it’s good enough for the government
