Union Pacific Railroad - employees 2013-2018

Number of Union Pacific's employees from FY 2013 to FY 2018

Union Pacific Railroad - employees 2013-2018 Over the last five years Union Pacific’s workforce has steadily declined, dropping from 47,201 employees in 2014 to 41,967 in 2018.
U.S. freight rail operators

Union Pacific is one of the seven U.S. class I freight rail operators, being the group of the largest freight rail operators in the U.S. all with annual operating revenues of more than 250 million U.S. dollars (in 1991 dollars). In terms of operating revenue, Union Pacific is the second largest of the class I operators, slightly behind BNSF. Based on market value though, Union Pacific is the largest railway company in the world.

Union Pacific’s revenue

The declining employee count of Union Pacific appears to be due to a combination of declining revenue and the implementation of efficiencies. Their freight revenue declined by around four billion U.S. dollars from 2014 to 2016, before partially recovering to reach 21.4 billion U.S. dollars in 2018. Concurrently, their revenue tone-miles followed a similar trend, dropping by around 20 percent from 2014 to 2016 before growing slightly again. However, over this time, Union Pacific’s operating ratio has been improving, indicating the introduction of cost-saving measures.
