Weingarten Rights

If you believe that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from what you say in a meeting with a supervisor, you have the right to request that a union representative (such as a building rep) attend the meeting with you.

The union representative will listen and take notes to confirm the accuracy of any statements.

Please note that management is NOT required to inform the employee of his/her Weingarten right. It is the employee’s responsibility to know and invoke that right.

Protect yourself by asking about the purpose of the meeting before meeting with any administrator.
