Union (Weingarten) Rights

Weingarten rights are legally enforced protections ensuring that a union member has representation during any possible disciplinary meeting.

If you are in a situation where you feel you need union representation, read the following word for word to your supervisor to declare your Union Rights.

“If this discussion would lead in any way to my being disciplined or terminated or have any effect on my personal working conditions, I respectfully request that my Union Representative, Officer or Steward be present at this meeting. Without representation, I choose not to participate in this discussion.”
