Local 509 Stewards

Weingarten Rights

One of the most important rights that workers have as a member of a union is called Weingarten Rights. These rights state that if you are brought into a disciplinary or investigatory meeting or interview, you have the right to have a representative from the union present. Print out or right down this statement and remember it to protect your rights on the job:

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.
