Know Your Rights!

As a Local 21 Member, if you believe you are going into a meeting with your boss that may result in changes to terms and conditions of employment or you have a reasonable belief that it could lead to discipline, you have the right to request a Union Representative be with you in the meeting. It is important to note that YOU must request a Union Rep, management doesn’t have to tell you about this, which is known as “Weingarten Rights.”  This fun, short video, shows Weingarten in action. If you have questions, call the Local 21 offices at 510-451-4982.
