Picture this, you are a shop steward and get a request from an HR manager to sit in on an interview of a union member as part of an investigation; they won’t tell you or the worker what it’s about or let you speak alone; and the manager is vague and accusatory and threatens to discipline the member if they do not cooperate.  What can you do as a shop steward? How do you best represent the member and reduce the possibility of discipline?  At discipline arbitrations the employer’s key evidence is their investigation.  This new course will help you, as a worker’s advocate, level the playing field by knowing the rights of employees and limits of employers in investigations.
