Equal Opportunity Employer
Union Pacific's Equal Employment Opportunity Policy
With their diverse experiences, capabilities and viewpoints, employees at all levels bring unique ideas and contributions to Union Pacific. Union Pacific provides equal opportunity to all employees and applicants, without regard to race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status or disability.
Our policy exceeds federal and state Equal Employment Opportunity laws and applies to all terms and conditions of employment—including, but not limited to, hiring, placement, promotion, demotion, termination, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation and training.
We are committed to affirmative action (PDF file) for women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans at all levels and in every segment of our workforce.
Although this policy provides a good foundation for equal opportunity, Union Pacific believes that defining diversity goes beyond the current legal definitions of protected classes. In addition to differences of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, veteran status and disability status, diversity encompasses marital status, family status, political affiliations, educational background, socioeconomic status, lifestyle, sexual orientation, disabilities and other non-job-related factors.
A discrimination-free workplace and fair treatment are fundamental rights of all Union Pacific employees. Our work environment must always be one that respects and values differences—so that we may all contribute to our fullest potential.
