It’s Important to Know Your Rights!

Called into a possible investigative review with management?  You have the right to have union representation at that meeting and may decline participation in the meeting until your union representative is present.  This is covered under what is known as “Weingarten Rights”.  Local 340 strongly encourages you to always have a union representative present at a meeting with management that may result in discipline.  These representatives can assist you in clearing up the problem with management, call for more assistance if needed, and possibly diminish the penalty you receive or even save your job!

So if called into a meeting with management read the following statement to them:  if this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect 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.
