If you are notified to meet with Human Resources for an investigative interview or undisclosed reason, exercise you Weingartner Rights by calling you Union Representative assigned to your department or the UNION HALL (614-485-1265).
Weingartner Rights are your right to have Union Representation during an investigatory interview. These rights are the ruling of a 1975 U.S. Supreme Court case NLRB vs. Weingartneer Inc.
These rights are not automatic! You must ask for your Union Represetative. Management is not required to inform you of this right. In any situation where the employee has reason to believe that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from what is said by the employee, UNION REPRENTATION should be present!
Weingartner Rights do not apply to everyday conversation between an employee and a supervisor or manager regarding work directives or work performance.
