    Weingarten Rights

    Know Your Rights!
    "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.    

    Without Union representation, I choose not to answer questions.   

                 

    BE AN ACTIVE MEMBER!

    . 

    SUMMARY: 
    When management begins to ask you questions that could lead to you being disciplined, you don’t have to face it alone.  If you have a reasonable belief that answers you give could be used by the supervisor to discipline you, the United States Supreme Court says you can refuse to answer any questions until a union representative is on the scene and has had a chance to talk things over with you first.  It is your right to have the union representative present during the questioning to advise you, ask supervisors for clarifications, and provide additional information at the end of the session.  The employee subject to the interview must reasonably believe that the investigatory interview will result in disciplinary action.  A meeting called by the employer for the purpose of imposing discipline, is not an interview subject to Weingarten Rights.

      San Jose Local secures workplace COVID-19 testing
      for members

      In order to keep his members safe from the coronavirus virus, Local 265-San Jose, CA President John Courtney believed it was critical to provide on the job COVID-19 testing for his members. "Some of our folks weren't getting tested for whatever reason," said Courtney. "But when we bring it to work, they're already here, they're ready to go." The Local partnered with Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors President Cindy Chavez and the Santa Clara County Valley Transportation Authority to bring pop-up testing to drivers in the yards. Since then, the Local has helped hundreds of drivers get tested for the virus. The Local is now looking to do testing on a rotating weekly basis at every yard. After the loss of VTA bus operator Sister Audrey Lopez and dozens of workers testing positive, on-site testing is just another way the Local is being vigilant to keep members and their families safe.
