UP Quarantine Temporary Leave Pay FAQ/RRB Guidance & FAQ

The carrier has provided the following Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document as it pertains to Union Pacific's Quarantine Temporary Pay Policy.   We have been tracking the most asked questions since the Policy's release on 3/20/2020 and believe these FAQs address most of these questions.

Further, Union Pacific's Government Affairs Office in Washington DC, has just received the RRB's revised Guidance and their FAQs.

As you know, Union Pacific's Quarantine Policy works in concert with RRB's program.

COVID and Pay

Brothers, 

 
  I got this off the UP COVID Q&A, I have been getting alot of calls on this and wanted to pass this along. 
 

Q: Under what conditions will Union Pacific compensate agreement employees while quarantined?

A: UP will compensate agreement employees for up to 14 days if the employee is directed to quarantine themselves by local health department personnel or UP Health and Medical Services personnel because the employee worked with a co-worker who tested positive for COVID-19.

New Hire Switch Module and other redundant training

Brothers, 

 
    I heard from the General Chairman today, all redundant modules will be removed from our training plan and will not be forced upon us during this time. 
 
 Be safe and try to limit your time in crew rooms and other high risk areas.

COVID-19 Update

Brothers, 

 
   I just received  the GC Updates from the 29th and 30th. They are attached. 
 
I have gotten a lot of calls about the CBT modules for switch testing, I called and spoke with Bybee about this and his message was if we want less testing stop running through switches. My issue raised with him was the time completing these redundant modules while sitting in the crew rooms was not essential, We as a company are trying to limit our time spent in high risk areas and here we are completing redundant modules. 
 
I have sent this to the General Chairman to bring up with Senior Management, I will let you know. 
 
Brian
