New Complaint Alleges Unfair Labor Practices At Gerawan Farming
The ongoing dispute between the United Farm Workers union and a major valley farming company has reached a new level.
Earlier today the General Counsel of the Agricultural Labor Relations Board filed a complaint alleging that Gerawan Farming forced workers to participate in an effort to decertify the union.
In the complaint the counsel alleges that the company’s unfair labor practices have unlawfully tainted the decertification process.
The company released a statement today disputing the allegations. It says that the board should count the ballots from last year’s decertification election.
The case is expected to go before a judge later this month.
