Weingarten Rights

If you are called into a meeting with a Management or a representative of management and you have reason to believe that disciplinary action may be imposed, you have the right to have a Union Steward or Union Representative present for the duration of the meeting. Please read the statement below and contact your Steward or Business Agent immediately.


“If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I request that my Union Representative, Officer, or Steward be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not to answer any question(s).””

“This is my right under the U.S. Supreme Court decision called Weingarten.”
