Disenfranchised Workers to Protest at CA State House
For Immediate Release:
January 21, 2015
Fresno – dozens of California farm workers will attend an upcoming labor board meeting to protest their disenfranchisement by state authorities.
The workers, from Fresno-based Gerawan Farming, voted to decertify the United Farm Workers (UFW) from their workplace in November 2013, but California’s Agricultural Labor Relations Board (ALRB) locked up those ballots and refuses to count them in a shocking display of pro-union bias.
