Brother's and Sister's:
"KNOW YOUR RIGHTS"
The Weingarten Doctrine: "Under the Supreme Courts 1975 Weingarten decision
- An employee has a right to Union Representation during an investigatory
interview that he/she reasonably believes may result in disciplinary action.
The employee must make a clear request for Union Representation and the
employer may grant the request, deny the request and abandon the interview,
or allow the employee to choose between continuing the interview without
Union Representation, or ending the interview. The employer may not legally
deny the request and continue to ask questions.
