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.”
