We Need Your Support
Many of you know that Teamsters Local 727 has been battling to improve work standards for Illinois pharmacists. To that end, we recently met with state representatives and were successful in getting a bill filed - House Bill 2392 - incorporating the concerns of pharmacists to ensure better working conditions.
01.17.17 -- Teamsters Local 727 last year met with Illinois state representatives and prepared proposals for new legislation aimed at addressing the concerns of Teamster-represented Osco and CVS pharmacists.
Remember Your Weingarten Rights!
If you are called into a meeting and have reason to believe that disciplinary action may be imposed, you have the right to have your union representative present during the meeting.
Read this statement to management: “If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I request my union representative be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not to answer any questions. This is my right under the U.S. Supreme Court decision called Weingarten.”
