Know Your Rights!

1. You have the right to request the presence of a Union Representative or Shop Steward during any investigatory interview you reasonably believe might result in disciplinary action.

2. You have the right not to be interviewed until your Union  Representative or Shop Steward is present.

3. Your Union Representative or Shop Steward may assist you during the interview to organize and explain your facts.

These are your rights under the Weingarten Decision, a case heard in the US Supreme Court, which ruled that you have the right to have your Union Representative present when you are interviewed by your employer if you reasonably believe the interview may lead to disciplinary action.

If you have any questions about your rights, contact your store’s shop steward or call your Union Representative.  To locate your Union Representative’s name, use the Find Your Rep tool on the right.
