Update on Labor Negotiations

Announcement Number: CN2022-53
Categories: General Announcements
Posted Date: September 13, 2022

To Our Customers,

Union Pacific continues to push for a prompt resolution to the labor negotiations. We are working hard to resolve disputes with the remaining unions before the cooling off period ends on Friday, September 16, 2022, at 12:01 a.m. Due to the uncertainty of the labor negotiations, we are prepared to take the proactive steps to secure our customers’ goods. At this time, we have only embargoed rail security-sensitive material (RSSM) shipments to make sure these hazardous commodities are safely secured in the event of a work stoppage. You may reference our Embargo page or the AAR Embargo System for active embargoes.

Union Pacific is hopeful for a prompt resolution of the labor agreements as quickly as possible so that we can continue to provide rail service to our customers. We are in active discussions with the unions and the status of the negotiations can change quickly. We will continue to provide you updates as they become available.

If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care & Support at 800-272-8777 or your Union Pacific representative.
