Jill Folsom, AFGE Treasurer is now a Notary and will be happy to assist our members with their notary needs. Please send her a message to ensure she is in the office before you come up. Currently her notary Union hours are Monday – Friday 0830am-16:00pm.
One of the most valuable rights you have as a union member is the right to have a union representative with you for any discussions that could result in discipline. However, while it is a right your supervisor doesn’t not have to remind you. You are responsible to ask for representation. Below you will find the exact wording that can be cut out and placed in your ID holder just in case!
Text Box: “If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I respectively request
that my union representative, officer or steward be present at this meeting. Until my representative arrives, I choose not to participate in this discussion.”
