Update on National Bargaining

Announcement Number: CN2022-65

Posted Date: November 10, 2022

To Our Customers,

Yesterday, the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees Division of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (BMWED) agreed to extend their cooling off period, which was set to expire on November 19, to at least December 4, 2022. This extension averts any work stoppage during the cooling off period.

Union Pacific is engaged with both the BMWED and BRS and remains willing to enter into agreements based on the PEB recommendations. Agreements based on the PEB recommendations have already been ratified by the members of seven other unions, and three ratification votes remain pending. We will continue to keep a close eye on the current situation and provide updates as they become available.
