WEINGARTEN RIGHTS: WHAT ARE THEY? If you find yourself being questioned by a supervisor and if you think that questioning will lead to disciplinary action against you, invoke your Weingarten rights.These rights were established by the United States Supreme Court in 1975. By claiming them, you are entitled to union representation and the questions must come to an end. If necessary, inform your supervisor that you are invoking your rights. At that point, you are entitled to union representation, and the interview must cease until a loyal union representative is at your side. Weingarten rights apply to both part-time and full-time faculty members.
