MEA members have what are known as Weingarten Rights. These rights are granted to union members by the Supreme Court and state the following:
NLRB v. J. Weingarten, Inc, 420 U.S. 251, 88 LRRM 2689
(U.S. Supreme Court, 1975)
If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I respectfully request that my union representative, officer, or steward be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not to answer any questions.
