Union Pacific

This chapter describes the changes in Union Pacific Railroad's corporate relationship during the 1970s. The worlds of the corporate boardroom and the railroad's management were each insular in its own way and largely separate until the most profound transformation of the railroad industry in history pushed them toward convergence. By 1970 the structure of their relationship had been formalized in the form of Union Pacific Corporation. Each of its operating companies had its own management team and ran its own operation except for treasury and tax functions, which remained with the corporate staff. The railroad was no longer the entity; it was one among several within the corporate umbrella.
