CALENDAR AND NEWSLETTER

No calendar is available due to the departure of the person who was previously responsible for the printing and distribution of both calendar and newsletter. The union recently hired another individual to take on this responsibility and moving forward calendars shall be printed and distributed in December 2020.

After a delay the union newsletters have been delivered to mailboxes state-wide and moving forward shall be delivered quarterly to members and retirees. In the next edition of the newsletter a section shall be dedicated to our retirees.

Both the calendar and newsletter are prepared and printed by Teamster members at Service Printers Hawaii.

Weingarten Rights

In 1975 the United States Supreme Court in the case of NLRB v. J. Weingarten, Inc. 420 U.S. 251 (1975) upheld a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decision that employees have a right to union representation at investigatory interviews. These rights have become known as the Weingarten Rights.

During an investigatory interview, the Supreme Court ruled that the following rules apply:

Rule 1: The employee must make a clear request for union representation before or during the interview. The employee cannot be punished for making this request.

Rule 2: After the employee makes the request, the employer must choose from among three options:

  • grant the request and delay questioning until the union representative arrives and (prior to the interview continuing) the representative has a chance to consult privately with the employee;
  • deny the request and end the interview immediately; or
  • give the employee a clear choice between having the interview without representation, or ending the interview.

Rule 3: If the employer denies the request for union representation, and continues to ask questions, it commits an unfair labor practice and the employee has a right to refuse to answer. The employer may not discipline the employee for such a refusal.
