Actually comparing themselves to people that helped the war effort during WW2.
Apparently UP HR is now conducting push-polling on this message board. The question referenced is framed using the standard corporate double-speak, complete with vacuous allusions to "cultural engagement", and other such tripe. @UP HR: You know... — read more

In the words of the country singer Johnny Paycheck, take that job and shove it
Did we meet all the goals and become the railroad they dreamed we would be this year?
There are a lot of posts on this site but none of it bothers up because it is mostly nonsense. And they delete any posts that mention any specific names. There's no point posting about striking. It will never happen. UP is a public trade company... — read more
CEO Lance Fritz has a 47% approval rating. https://www.indeed.com/cmp/Union-Pacific
In a recent town hall Mr. Fritz stated if RULA isn't extended (which it's not), then they may have to look at making more permanent measures on a smaller scale. Cold Connect and HDC have already been significantly impacted. Lots of movement at... — read more
A big train wreck in Arizona today . I hate to say I told you so. But I told you so. You can't have a safe railroad without proper manpower . It's guaranteed to happen again
I heard coming August 1st ALL U.P. Employees will no longer be encouraged to wear face masks but will be required.

Jenks is officially closed for the rest of the year. Thank's Mo for the information now we can officially start looking for employment elsewhere. Been a good run guy's best of luck to you all that are left.
UPS is ready to cancel all business with Union Pacific. They have given Uncle Pete two weeks to remedy the situation or they are DONE. Precision Railroading is definitely the problem in my opinion. They can't get these trains on time when they have... — read more
How many more derails before the FRA finally does something
How many do you think will get fired or demoted this time? They’re not getting the results they want, so they’re going to keep demoting and promoting until they find the right people.
Get your gloves and hard hats ready gentlemen, we’re all getting recalled back to work! Fritz says company is good to go even with the covid.
Asking for a friend.
Everyone continues to post all of those. At this point, if you have enough seniority to still be employed, you should realize that rules, laws, agreements, etc. do not apply to them. Promise whatever they wish, as long as there is no enforcement... — read more

Omahas next move will be the push for single crew cabs due to the spread of Covid 19. The real question is when?
The attacks here on Lance are an embarrassment. It’s a difficult time for us all and he’s doing what needs to be done for the long term health of the Company. I’m sure the decision was not taken lightly and we should at least acknowledge his candor... — read more
Well it appears Nlr will be getting a new shop director.
Because of PSR Union Pacific lost business, now they too much loco’s and flat cars in storage to handle shipping. In my opinion which means nothing but Union Pacific was the best without PSR, I wonder if they regret it?
Looks like a winning combination, UP has acquired more business from the e commerce giant Amazon. On the surface this seems like an uplifting story for employees ,but like they say, "the devil is in the details". Now Im not one for conspiracy... — read more
Well right now it's just stories and rumors about who stays and who goes! I will simply state I hate seeing anyone lose their job! The only person I would like to see go is up on the 19th floor of the glass palace in Omaha! Losing a job is very tough... — read more

I don’t think I’ll be going back to UP because my seniority is too low. I just started paying 950 a month for COBRA. My state doesn’t have expanded Medicaid and “he” is ending the ACA anyway “he” said so. Working people should start voting for our... — read more
