Under NO circumstance should you John Wayne it and attend the hearing without your rep. That is the rep's job. I have been told in the hypothetical that often a rep can start with the CP, with you not in the room, and alleviate most minor problems before you even enter. That might be Company/Union specific, but a rep is there to represent and protect you. They should be trained for this.
