Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions (see General Instruction A.2. below):
On June 7, 2011, Union Pacific Railroad Company (UPRR), the principal operating subsidiary of Union Pacific Corporation (the Corporation), received a copy of a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia naming certain U.S. Class I Railroads, including UPRR, as defendants. Some of the allegations in the complaint are being addressed in the existing fuel surcharge litigation involving UPRR and other U.S. Class I Railroads, which the Corporation disclosed in previous filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Forms 10-K and 10-Q. The Complaint includes additional unrelated allegations regarding alleged limitations on competition for shipments by the customer filing the complaint. UPRR denies all of the allegations in the complaint and intends to vigorously defend its actions against these allegations. Therefore, the Corporation does not currently believe that these matters will have a material adverse effect on its results of operations, financial condition and liquidity. The Corporation is filing this current report solely due to its pending private debt exchange transaction, which expires on June 20, 2011.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
Dated: June 10, 2011
