Weingarten Rights: If your supervisor questions you about a situation where discipline could result, please invoke your Weingarten Rights and ask for a union representative. Remember not to provide information about a situation, even in informal circumstances, unless you have union representation. You can find more information about Weingarten Rights here: https://massteacher.org/mta-membership/legal-resources/know-your-legal-rights/weingarten-the-right-to-representation
Personnel Files: It’s always a good idea to check your personnel file in Human Resources periodically. Have your E7s and E5s been placed in your file? Is your job description there? Is your resume in your file? Is your job classification grid in your file? You should be able to view your file anytime during normal business hours. It is important to know that if any additional materials are added to your personnel file, you should receive a copy of that material with seven days. You also have the right to file a statement in response to any written material in your file.
