Know Your Rights... See Union First When Told To See Management.
To All Members: If Called Into A Meeting With Management, You Should Say:
“If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, I respectfully request that my union rep/shop steward be present at the meeting. Without representation present, I choose not to respond to any questions or make any statements."
It's Management or It's You
Although we may like to believe that our conversations with management are 'off the record' or are with someone we believed to be our 'friend', that is not necessary the case. Management is under obligation to the New York City Transit and/or they maybe forced to to reveal what you told them.
You should always have your union present for any written reports, questions, or conversations with management.
Always consult your union before revealing any information to management. What you say to management maybe used against you.
