Meeting with Management
Have you been asked to attend a meeting with management? The purpose of the meeting will help you determine if a shop steward should be present.
Stewards will not normally be required when attending these types of meetings:
- Assignment progress reports;
- Routine performance review meetings;
- Workplace operational issues such as shift scheduling and task assignment;
However, if this meeting is disciplinary in nature or could lead to discipline, then you have a right to have a steward present. Although you don’t have the right to refuse to answer questions, your steward can make sure the questions are on topic and relevant to the situation at hand.
