Balancing Work and Family

Balancing work and family is important to both employees and Union Pacific. To accomplish this, the railroad provides flexibility in benefits and alternate work arrangements including:

Life Care Services

Employee Assistance

Union Pacific recognizes that poor and declining job performance may be caused by personal problems that can be treated if there is competent intervention. The UP Employee Assistance Program is a confidential program designed to assist employees and their family members with a variety of situations and personal problems.
