October 22, 2018

Q: What should I do if my name is on the attached list?

Contact your supervisor saying that: “I am one of the employees required to work during the strike. I will report to work during the shifts indicated on the list provided to me by my Union.”

Q: If my name is on the attached list, can I still join the picket line before/after work and during my lunch time?

Absolutely!! You are legally required to attend work on the shifts listed but UC cannot interfere with or retaliate against your participation in union activities.

Q: Can my supervisor change my shift and force me to work overtime on the day(s) when I report to work?

UC cannot force you to work longer than your designated shifts on the days you are required to work in order to prevent you from coming to the picket line before/after work.

Q: Can my supervisor force me to come in on the day(s) that I am not legally required to work during the strike?

No. If you are only required to work on Tuesday, you still have the legal right to join the strike on Wednesday and Thursday. Your supervisor cannot force you to come in for any shifts other than those indicated on the attached list.

Q: I don’t see my name on the list but my supervisor contacted me and told me that I am required to work during strike. What will happen if I don’t show up?

If you don’t see your name on the list, you have the legal right to strike. UC cannot force you to work or retaliate against you for striking.
