Dated: February 3, 2011

This Letter Agreement (the “Agreement”) will confirm an award to you of stock units (“Stock Units”), as of the date hereof, by Union Pacific Corporation (the “Company”), under the 2004 Stock Incentive Plan of the Company, as amended from time to time (the “Plan”), a copy of which is included in this grant package on this website and made a part hereof.

STOCK UNITS

1. GRANT OF UNITS. The Company hereby awards to you the number of Stock Units, as shown on Exhibit A of this Agreement, each evidencing the right to receive, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement and the Plan, (i) one share of Union Pacific Corporation Common Stock, $2.50 par value per share (“Common Stock”) and (ii) a payment in cash equal to the amount of dividends that would have been payable on one share of Common Stock (“Dividend Equivalent Payments”), provided the applicable Performance Criteria described below have been satisfied.

2. RESTRICTION PERIOD. The period during which the restrictions set forth herein and in the Plan shall apply to your right to receive the Stock Units granted to you shall commence on the date hereof and expire February 3, 2014 if and to the extent the Performance Criteria described below for such Stock Units have been satisfied (the “Restriction Period”), subject to the provisions of Section 6 hereof. During the Restriction Period, you may be entitled to receive Dividend Equivalent Payments, subject to the provisions of Section 4 and Section 6(iii) hereof.

3. PERFORMANCE CRITERIA. The Performance Criteria is annual Return on Invested Capital (“ROIC”). However, such Performance Criteria is of no force and effect unless and until the Company has operating income (“Operating Income”) in one or more of fiscal years 2011, 2012 or 2013. The definition and calculation of annual ROIC and Operating Income shall be determined in accordance with the Long Term Plan document approved and adopted by the Compensation and Benefits Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Committee”).

You may earn Stock Units during the Restriction Period based on the Company’s satisfaction of the Performance Criteria in accordance with the ROIC targets and payout schedule approved by the Committee, subject to Section 6(iii) hereof. For the fiscal year


ending December 31, 2011, you may earn up to one-third of your Stock Unit Target Award as shown on Exhibit A based on the first fiscal year (2011) of ROIC performance achieved. For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012, you may earn up to a total of two-thirds of your Stock Unit Target Award as shown on Exhibit A (less any Stock Units earned in the first fiscal year) based on the average of the first two fiscal years (2011 and 2012) of ROIC performance achieved. For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2013, you may earn up to two times your Stock Unit Target Award as shown on Exhibit A (less any Stock Units earned in the first two fiscal years) based on the average of all three fiscal years (2011, 2012, and 2013) of ROIC performance achieved.

4. DIVIDEND EQUIVALENT RIGHTS. For all dividend record dates occurring while you are employed and between the date that Stock Units are earned and the date that shares are delivered to you, you shall be entitled to receive Dividend Equivalent Payments for those Stock Units which have been earned in accordance with Section 3 hereof. If you earn Stock Units in accordance with Section 3 hereof that are payable to you as specified in Section 6(iii) hereof, unless otherwise determined by the Committee, you shall further receive Dividend Equivalent Payments for all dividend record dates occurring after you are separated from service through the date the shares are delivered to you as provided in and subject to the adjustment described in Section 6(iii) hereof. Any such Dividend Equivalent Payments shall be made on the payment date established by the Board of Directors for the underlying dividend payments; provided, however, that if you have elected to defer receipt of such Stock Units in accordance with the terms of the Deferred Compensation Plan of Union Pacific Corporation (the “Deferred Compensation Plan”), payment of such Dividend Equivalent Payments shall be made in accordance with the provisions of Section 12 of the Plan.

5. RESTRICTIONS. (i) You shall be entitled to delivery of the shares of Common Stock only as specified in Section 6 hereof; (ii) none of the Stock Units may be sold, transferred, assigned, pledged, or otherwise encumbered or disposed of; (iii) your right to receive Dividend Equivalent Payments shall terminate without further obligation on the part of the Company at the earlier of your separation from service with the Company or a Subsidiary, except as provided in Section 6(iii) hereof, or your receipt of Common Stock under Section 6 hereof; (iv) all of the Stock Units shall be forfeited and all of your rights to such Stock Units and the right to receive Common Stock shall terminate without further obligation on the part of the Company in the event of your separation from service with the Company or a Subsidiary without having a right to delivery of shares of Common Stock under Section 6 hereof; and (v) any Stock Units not earned as of the end of the Restriction Period shall be forfeited and all of your rights to such Stock Units shall terminate without further obligation on the part of the Company.

6. LAPSE OF RESTRICTIONS AND PAYMENT OF STOCK UNITS. (i) Following the end of the Restriction Period and provided you have remained continuously employed by the Company or a Subsidiary through the end of the Restriction Period and absent any Change of Control before the end of the Restriction Period, unless otherwise determined by the Committee, shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Stock Units which are earned pursuant to the achievement of the applicable Performance Criteria shall be delivered to you (through your account at the Company’s third party stock plan administrator, if applicable) free of all restrictions, provided the Company has Operating Income in one or more of the fiscal years 2011, 2012 or 2013. The payment of the Stock Units under this Section 6(i) shall be made to you as soon as practicable following the end of the Restriction Period, but in no event later than two and one-half (2 1/2) months following the end of the calendar year that includes the date on which the Restriction Period ends. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not be obligated to deliver any shares of Common Stock during any period when the Company determines that the delivery of shares hereunder would violate any federal, state or other applicable laws and/or may issue shares subject to any restrictive legend that, as determined by the Company’s counsel, is necessary to comply with securities or other regulatory requirements.

(ii) If you have a separation from service with the Company or a Subsidiary prior to the end of the Restriction Period and prior to a Change in Control because you die or become disabled (as determined under the provisions of the Company’s or a Subsidiary’s long-term disability plan), you, your estate or your beneficiary, as the case may be, shall be entitled to receive shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Stock Units which are earned based on achievement of the applicable Performance Criteria through the end of the fiscal year ending prior to the date of your death or disability, as the case may be, provided the Company has Operating Income in one or more of the fiscal years 2011, 2012 or 2013 and further provided that such fiscal year precedes the date of your death or disability. The payment of the Stock Units under this Section 6(ii) shall be as soon as practicable following your separation from service, but in no event later than two and one-half (2 1/2) months following the end of the calendar year that includes the date on which you die or become disabled.

the end of the Restriction Period and prior to a Change in Control because you retire after having attained age 62 with 10 years of service under the provisions of the Company’s or a Subsidiary’s pension plan (“Retirement”), you, your estate or your beneficiary, as the case may be, shall be entitled to receive shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Stock Units which are earned based on the average of all three fiscal years (2011, 2012 and 2013) of the applicable Performance Criteria achieved prorated based on the number of fiscal years in the Restriction Period during which you remained continuously employed by the Company or a Subsidiary until September 30th of that year (e.g., if you retire on or after September 30, 2011 then you would be entitled to receive payment for 33 1/3% of the earned Stock Units, if you retire on or after September 30, 2012 then you would be entitled to receive payment for 66 2/3% of the earned Stock Units and if you retire on or after September 30, 2013 than you would be entitled to receive payment for 100% of the earned Stock Units), provided that the Company has Operating Income in one or more of the fiscal years 2011, 2012 or 2013. You shall be entitled to receive Dividend Equivalent Payments respecting all Stock Units earned in accordance with Section 3 hereof through the end of the fiscal year ending before your Retirement for all dividend record dates occurring after your Retirement and during the Restriction Period until you receive Common Stock under this Section 6(iii), notwithstanding your Retirement. The Committee shall adjust the total amount of such Dividend Equivalent Payments made to you and/or the total number of shares of Common Stock paid to you following the end of the Restriction Period so that the total amount of such Dividend Equivalent Payments made to you do not exceed the amount that would have been made based on the number of Stock Units which are earned as set forth in this Section 6(iii). The payment of the Stock Units under this Section 6(iii) shall be made as soon as practicable following the end of the Restriction Period, but in no event later than two and one-half (2 1/2) months following the end of the calendar year that includes the end of the Restriction Period.

(iv) If a Change in Control occurs prior to the end of the Restriction Period and prior to your death, disability or Retirement, or separation from service for any other reason, shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Stock Units that would have been earned if the Performance Criteria shall have been satisfied at the greater of one hundred percent of your Stock Unit Target Award as shown on Exhibit A or the number of Stock Units that would have been earned based on the Performance Criteria satisfied through the end of each fiscal year prior to the occurrence of such Change in Control and through the end of the most recent fiscal quarter ending prior to the date of the Change in Control shall be delivered to you (through your account at the Company’s third party

12. PRIOR NOTICE OF EMPLOYMENT, ETC.

You agree that you will deliver such shares of Common Stock (or the cash equivalent) to the Company on such terms and conditions as may be required by the Company. You further agree that the Company will be entitled to enforce this repayment obligation by all legal means available, including, without limitation, to set off the market value of any such shares of Common Stock against any amount that might be owed to you by the Company.

NO DIRECT COMPETITION

14. SOLICITATION OF CUSTOMERS; NO EMPLOYMENT WITH WESTERN ROADS. By electronically accepting this Agreement, you agree for a period of one year following your departure from the Company, you will not (directly or in association with others) call on or solicit the business of any of the Company’s customers with whom you actually did business or otherwise had personal contact while you were employed by the Company, for the purpose of providing the customers with goods and/or services similar in nature to those provided by the Company in the states in which the Company now operates. You further agree that for the same time period, you will not, directly or indirectly, engage in any activity which is the same as or competitive with the Business (as defined below) including, without limitation, engagement as an officer, director, proprietor, employee, partner, investor (other than as a holder of less than 2% of the outstanding capital stock of a publicly traded corporation), guarantor, consultant, advisor, agent, sales representative or other participant, anywhere in the

You therefore agree that the Company, in addition to any other remedies available to it, including, without limitation, the remedies set forth in Sections 13 and 16, shall be entitled to injunctive relief against your breach or threaten breach of said covenants. You and the Company further agree that, in the event that any provision of Sections 11, 12 and 14 shall be determined by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable by reason of its being extended over too great a time, too large a geographic area or too great a range of activities, such provision shall be deemed to be modified to permit its enforcement to the maximum extent permitted by law.

The Committee will exercise its discretion only in the event that the Committee’s certification of a level of ROIC was based on financial results subsequently revised by a restatement of such financial results and only to the extent that such restated financial results would have entitled you to a lesser award of Common Stock under the Performance Criteria.
