You Have the Right

As a worker in America you have certain rights. Now that you have voted to join a union, you have even more protections in the workplace. 

You have the right to discuss union issues at work with co-workers as long as it does not interfere with your duties. “Baseball and Babies” is often the saying – meaning, if you are allowed to discuss the Spokane Indians baseball game or a co-worker’s new baby, then you are allowed under the law to discuss union topics at work as well.
