Because we have a Union, we have WEINGARTEN RIGHTS:


Weingarten rights guarantee an employee the right to Union representation during an investigatory interview. These rights, established by the Supreme Court, in 1975 in the case of J’. Weingarten Inc,, must be claimed by the employee whenever they feel that they are in an investigatory interview. The supervisor has no obligation to inform an employee that s/he is entitled to Union representation.
