Know Your Weingarten Rights
Anytime you are questioned by a supervisor where you believe discipline may result or notes are kept by the supervisor:
1. Request a UNAC/UHCP Representative. Management must ensure a Representative is supplied upon request.
2. BEFORE YOU ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT:
a. to know who is your accuser.
b. what specific rule you’re accused of violating.
c. to review documentation management may have against you.
d. to time to confer with your Representative.
3. Don’t answer anything if a Representative is not provided, just keep the chair warm.
Print out this page. Bring it with you if called to a meeting, and read the following:
“If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I respectfully request that my union representative, officer, or steward be present at this meeting. Until my representative arrives, I choose not to participate in this discussion.”
