Jaime Smith, a Meat Wrapper at Lacey Fred Meyer, was told by Management to come to their office, they told her that she was going to receive discipline. Knowing her contract and her Right to Representation (Weingarten Rights), she told Management she was going to call her Union Rep. Going into the meeting Management already had their mind made up with corrective action notice ready. 

Jaime told Management that the error was caused by too much to do and not enough time which was more of a staffing issue. Because Jaime knew her rights she was able to tell her side of the story and her discipline was reduced to a verbal notice.
