Shop Stewards: Representing Your Rights

In one sense, all union members are union stewards for we should all work to ensure justice on the job. However, the official Union Steward is often the face of the union to other members and to the company. He is a chief enforcer of the contract and members' representative to management. This page is designed to provide a ready reference tool to the stewards who represent IBEW Local 45 in the various shops that make up our organization.

One of the most vital functions of a Union steward is to prevent management from intimidating employees. Nowhere is this more important than in closed-door meetings when supervisors or guards, often trained in interrogation techniques, attempt to coerce employees into confessing to wrongdoing.

In 1975, in NLRB v. J. Weingarten, Inc, the U.S. Supreme Court announced the rights of employees in the presence of union representatives during investigatory interviews. Since that case involved a clerk being investigated by the Weingarten Company, these rights have become known as Weingarten rights.
