They have called back some diesel shop guys that were furloughed in San Antonio. Only one accepted so far. The rest rejected.
Topics regarding layoffs at Union Pacific Corp.
UP doesn’t have any external jobs posted for the first time in a while. Not even anything for the poor interns. Not even the 6 or 7 lawyer postings they usually have. They need to start hiring some dispatchers before they have to get the DJs... — read more
With the current state of affairs and the direction this Railroad is headed, it seems more tragic then the Von Erich wrestling legacy curse.
Last fall they made cuts to the train dispatching workforce to "right size" the department. Along with an increase of Covid-19 cases within the department, they also didn't expect the large amount of resignations after the bloodbath of layoffs. Now... — read more
The greatest part is there is no hiring class in the works. A dispatcher takes 6 months to train and 2-4 years to get decent. When it downward spirals it will go down fast. **I have heard they are raiding the company for former dispatchers and making... — read more
Did anyone ever get that "$1000" bonus? I just read an article saying they gave its 31000 employees a $1000 bonus, even furloughed employees that worked at least 30 days between March and now. I know I didn't get sh–hat I know of.
Rumor was the bonus was an advance on future back pay from contract. Give us a thousand now and don’t get anything when the new contract gets shoved down our throat. . There is a lot of controversy about the bonus, but is it possible for this... — read more

I've seen engines explode before, but this one is the worst I've seen so far. A UP engine in Utah blew up so badly that mangled everything with 4 feet of of the turbo. How no one was injured in that explosion is a miracle.
I would (and have) told tell them to run. Once I explain a little about the company and the layoffs as soon as training is over they realize their current job is better. The only reason to take a job with UP now is if you are unemployed. They’re... — read more

Why would you ever expect employees with high standards, when they are led by people with absolutely no concept of standards or morals?
This company doesn’t even pretend to care about safety anymore. It’s all about the short term profits and insider trading to sell off before the earnings report comes out. (...) It is literally rated the worst company in America. What else can be... — read more
Covid 19 has hit the West Colton yard and is wiping out crews faster than Jim Vena shutting down a hump yard. The once indestructable yard has now fallen victim to the uber virus. Last Saturday 3 Carmen sharing a 3 hour lunch together fell victim to... — read more

39 cars on the ground , dbl main closed for at least 24 hrs. Morale is so bad not even the trains give a f#$% anymore
This company does not spend money rationally at all. Some people are simply privileged. The real question needing to be asked if you demoted someone to a lesser job why continue to pay them the same salary they had from the position they were... — read more

What’s the big news??
I had heard the EB hump at N.Platte was closed but is now open again. What about some of the other yards? Proviso? Is Roseville hump open? I would think Hinkle and Pine Bluff are lost forever. What about your area yard? Any news on closings... — read more
Union Pacific the largest railroad in America is one of the fewest jokes known to man. This company charges outrageous fees for shipping, most of the employees have either a GED or High School diploma, and earn 80,000 plus a year while a individual... — read more
Is that becase the company is really bad or because it's employees have high standards, expect a lot and are always vocal
Wichita Kansas laid off All of their Carmen 7 total. And put on 1 TCI .
Seriously, my manager knows next to nothing about my job responsibilities. Why would I go to her for advice or direction? Why should I listen to her during performance reviews? And the main question I’ve been asking is why is she my manager? Just... — read more
Some of those people quit other jobs to go to the UP, only to be told they are being laid off when their training is done. These are the same people that can’t go back to their old jobs. So do you think the reviews are still irrelevant? WHY train... — read more
Beaumont Texas just just let go of all the carmen. Union Pacific wants to go to all long haul trains so no one is safe if they work at a outlying point

I wonder if U.P. will go as far as to try to adopt a vaccine policy requiring you to get a shot or just highly encourage employees to get one.
This is dismal as Union Pacific is the only transportation company on the list!!! https://www.google.com/amp/s/247wallst.com/special-report/2019/06/12/the-worst-companies-to-work-for-4/amp/
