Your Rights

ALL UNION MEMBERS HAVE RIGHTS THAT ARE PROTECTED BY THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT.  

If you are called into a meeting with management and the meeting could in any way lead to your being disciplined or terminated, or affect your personal working conditions, inform management that you request that your Union Delegate be present at the meeting.  Until your Delegate arrives, explain that you choose not to participate in their discussion.   

YOU MUST BE CLEAR IN YOUR REQUEST TO HAVE UNION REPRESENTATION BEFORE OR DURING THE MEETING! 

You cannot be punished for making this request.  If management denies this request and continues to question, it will have committed an UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE, which is a violation of Federal law, and you then have a right to refuse to answer their questions. 

Management can not discipline you for such a refusal, if you have followed these steps.   

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your local delegate.
