Know You're Rights!

Did you know anytime you are faced with disciplinary actions you may (highly recommended) request a union representative?  Just tell your supervisor you want a union representative before they begin to discipline you.  See your Weingarten Rights here.  Click here for a Union Rep.

All Bargaining Unit Employees of the  Bureau of Prisons have the right to be accompanied by a Union Representative to all interviews with management officials, in which the employee reasonably believes the interview might result in disciplinary action (e.g. Investigative, Safety, Accident, Mystery Shopper) to include "NOT THE SUBJECT OF THE INVESTIGATION".

We encourage all bargaining unit staff to become union members.  Remember, strength is in numbers.
