Weingarten Rights

If you are being asked questions which could result in discipline, be sure to do the following:

  • ​Request the right to have your Union Steward with you before answering any questions, and do not volunteer information before speaking with your Steward.
  • Make sure you are ordered to answer the questions.
  • Keep your answers to the point and very accurate.  Be completely truthful in your answers.  Do not speculate.
  • Do not volunteer to take a polygraph examination or drug test.
  • If you are told you are facing a criminal investigation, refuse to answer any questions until you have spoken with an attorney or your union representative.

"If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or discharged, request that my Union representative be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not to answer any questions."
