Weingarten Rights:

Know your rights: The Right to Representation

If you are ever called into an interview meeting with your supervisor
or manager so they can investigate a situation which might result in
discipline, you have specific representational rights. These rights are
summarized below:

1.        You have the right to have a Union steward present.

2.        If you want a steward there, you must ask for him or              

3.        If you do not know why your manager wants to meet             
           with you, ask him/her if it is a meeting that could result           
           in a discipline.

4.        If your manager refuses to allow you to bring a                       
           steward, repeat your request in front of a witness. Do            
           not refuse to attend the meeting, but do not answer              
           any questions either. Take notes. Once the meeting is            
           over call your steward at once.

5.        You have the right to speak privately with your steward          
           before the meeting and during the meeting.

6.        Your steward has the right to play an active role in the           
           meeting. She or he is not just a witness.

These rights are called "Weingarten Rights" based on a 1975
Supreme Court decision (NLRB vs. J. Weingarten). As with all rights,
if we do not use them we lose them.
