Union members can have a union rep present at interviews that may lead to discipline. By Lisa Guerin, J.D.

If you are a union member, you have a right to have union representation at any interview or meeting that could lead to disciplinary action against you. The Supreme Court case of National Labor Relations Board v. Weingarten, decided in 1975, established this basic entitlement and the procedures for when and how union reps may participate in interviews. Collectively, these rules are referred to as “Weingarten rights.”

CASE File:
At the Seattle conference last week, audience members asked three questions following a lecture on insubordination. The speaker is a prominent labor arbitrator who was once a labor-side attorney.

Question: The order is: "sort through 4 pallets and then, you can leave." The next morning, the supervisor finds that only 2 of the 4 pallets were completed. Is that insubordination?

Weber: "This battle will be won."

“It’s on!” Governor Brown’s veto of AB 1231 was a travesty. As the author of the CSU Employees Union sponsored legislation, I can tell you there was no sound reason why AB 1231 shouldn’t become law. It is simple fairness to give CSU support staff well-earned, and long overdue, salary steps enjoyed by management and faculty as well as the vast majority of other state employees. I am so angry by this injustice, but getting mad isn’t enough. I want you to know that I have recommitted to this cause.
