Know Your Weingarten Rights

  • Weingarten rights guarantee an employee the right to union representation during an investigatory interview.
  • It is your responsibility to request union representation before or during the interview.
  • You can’t be punished for making this request!

Your employer commits an UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE if it denies your request and continues the interview.
Notify the union immediately!

New York State COVID-19 paid leave benefits

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the state of New York enacted measures allowing most employees to receive paid time off using a combination of benefits, such as employer-provided COVID-19 sick leave, Paid Family Leave, and disability benefits.

If you are out with COVID-19 or are caring for ill family members, you might be entitled to paid time off and job protection.  Additional information can be found here.
