Understanding Your Union Rights

Weingarten Rights

Established by a 1975 Supreme Court decision, protects union members during interviews with supervisors that may lead to disciplinary actions. You have the right to:

  •  Clearly request union representation before or during the interview.

  • Be protected from retaliation by management for requesting representation.

  • Have the questioning delayed until the union representative arrives.

  • Refuse to answer management's questions if your request for a union representative is denied, as this is against federal law.

Weingarten rights are a crucial tool to ensure that you're not alone during challenging workplace situations and that your rights are upheld.

Your Rights
During Union Organizing

During the union organizing process, you have fundamental rights that protect your ability to join or support a union without interference from your employer. These rights include the freedom to discuss unionization with your coworkers, attend union meetings, and distribute union materials during non-work hours and in non-work areas. Your employer cannot threaten, coerce, or discriminate against you for engaging in union activities. Additionally, you have the right to participate in a secret ballot election conducted by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to determine whether your workplace will be unionized. These rights ensure that you can make informed decisions about union membership and participation, free from employer interference or retaliation.
