The Right to Union Representation
If you are called into a meeting with management, you have the right to have a union representative if the meeting could lead to you being disciplined or affect your work conditions. You do not have to speak without a union representative present.
Work Now, Grieve Later
Stand up for yourself but, be smart about it. Failure to follow instructions and gross insubordination can lead to termination. Never tell a supervisor, “I won’t do that.” Work as directed unless it violates safety and then ask for union representative.
