MEMBER BENEFITS

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

It is imperative that you know your employee rights in order to ensure equal treatment and fairness in the workplace. As a public employee, you have rights that are granted through your union contract, state and federal law, and work place policies. UPE's staff and member-leaders have fought tirelessly throughout the years to expand and protect these rights.

Some of these rights include proper representation during an investigatory meeting pertaining to a disciplinary matter. Your rights to Family Medical Leave Act, American Disabilities Act, and sick/vacation leave request/usage. A change of policy that impacts your current working conditions prescribed under the MOU and or government code. All of this matters and we will educate you through this process.

To that end, we are developing a series of short, easy-to-read summaries of many of your employment rights. More summaries will be added to this website over the coming months. Always feel free to ask your Steward and or your Business Representative about your employment rights and how they apply to your specific circumstances. In most cases, your employer is not required to inform you of your rights.

Right to Representation

You have the RIGHT to ask what the meeting is about, and what will be discussed. If the meeting is disciplinary, accusatory, or investigatory in nature, you have the RIGHT to have a Union representative present, if you have a reasonable belief that the interview could lead to discipline against you.
