Weingarten Rights


In 1975 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in the Weingarten decision that an employee is entitled to have Union representative present during any interview, which, may result in his or her discipline.  It is up to you to insist on Union representation.  If you fail to do so, you may waive your rights.

Do the following:

  • Ask your supervisor if you might be disciplined as a result of the interview.  If he says “NO,” ask for a written statement to that effect.  If he gives you such a statement, you must participate in the interview.  If not, read him your Weingarten Rights, remain for the meeting, take notes, and afterwards immediately contact you Union representative.
  • If he says, you might be disciplined but will not allow you to have a Union representative present, read him your Weingarten Rights, stay in the room, take notes, and do not respond to any questions.  Afterwards, contact you Union representative immediately.  If he allows your Union representative to be present, you should participate in the interview.

See your Steward for a copy of your Weingarten Rights.
