First, the union recommends that you sign nothing except your paycheck. If you have any doubts about signing a document, ask your manager "Is this is a condition of employment?" If you are told it is, then sign the required document and contact your union steward at once to determine if it something the union knows about. Contrary to what you may be told, you do not have to and should not sign the following documents:
- Code of business conduct
- Yearly appraisals
- Security or witness statement (from SWBT)
- Policies regarding sexual harassment, violence in the workplace, or EEOC
- Internet or other computer policies
- Anything else not covered in this list. Check with a steward if it is a "condition of employment."
Any of these documents can and will be used against you in any disciplinary matters that may come up regarding your employment. Again, do not sign them!
