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.

Below are your Weingarten rights:

“If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working condition, I respectfully request that my union steward, representative, or officer be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not answer any questions.”

Fresno City College: Contact Sheila Martin if you have questions or believe you have a grievance.

Reedley College and North Centers: Contact Maria Ortiz if you have questions or believe you have a grievance.

Part-time Faculty: Please contact Sheila Martin or Maria Ortiz if you have questions or believe you have a grievance.
