Did you Know?

If you are called into a meeting with management and you believe that the questioning could in any way lead to your being disciplined or terminated, or affect your personal working conditions, you have the right to request that a Union representative or Steward be present at the meeting. Without representation, explain that you choose not to answer any questions.

Freedom's something our people in the Military earned a long time ago, a better life for our people, the Union earned for a very long time, but it doesn't end there. We have to keep on earning it or it will disappear. Support our Veterans and their families and THINK UNION.
