The first thing to is to know the disciplinary process and the different types of disciplinary you can receive.
The disciplinary process goes as follows:
1. Verbal Disciplinary
2. EPL (Employee Performance Log)
3. Letter of Instruction
4. Formal Disciplinary
We can represent you in any portion of the Disciplinary process but we represent mostly at a formal disciplinary. This is when we go in with you to speak to the warden on your behalf.
When receiving a Formal Disciplinary:
1. Do not wave your 24 period. You want to have time to get us all the information we need to help you.
If you do wave your 24 hour period, the formal disciplinary can be handed down at that moment.
2. Do not write a specific union reps name down to be your representation. Instead write AFSCME and that
will allow any rep to be in the disciplinary meeting with you.
3. Call any of the stewards listed on this web page and let them know of the situation.
4. You should receive a packet from HR. Make sure we get a copy of the packet and any other information
the steward asks of you. Remember, it is your responsibility to get any and all paperwork to us. We
cannot get the paperwork ourselves.
5. You will then be able to talk with your union rep, ask and discuss any questions you may have, and get
everything in order before the formal disciplinary meeting.
1. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO FAIR REPRESENTATION
2. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAVE YOUR 24 HOUR PERIOD
3. YOUR UNION REP IS PERMITTED TO BE IN THE HEARING THE ENTIRE TIME
4. YOUR UNION REP IS ALLOWED TO SPEAK ON YOUR BEHALF
5. YOU ARE ALSO ALLOWED TO SPEAK ON YOUR OWN BEHALF EVEN WITH THE REP IN ATTENDANCE
6. YOU ARE ALLOWED TO TAKE THE ISSUE FURTHER IF NEED BE
