Union Pacific Railroad yesterday announced agreement employees who worked at least 30 days during the pandemic will receive a one-time $1,000 gross bonus payment in December.
Pending union approval, all current agreement employees — including those furloughed — who worked at least 30 days between March 1 and Nov. 30 will be eligible to receive the bonus. The days worked do not need to be consecutive, UP officials said in a press release.
"The pivotal role these essential employees play delivering critical supplies and keeping the economy open cannot be emphasized enough," said UP Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Lance Fritz. "This recognition reflects how notable their efforts are and how much their great work is appreciated."
