Farm Workers Voted 5-1 to Leave Union



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

It took five years and millions of dollars in legal fees for the workers at Garawan Farms to have their ballots counted—thanks to the corruption of the Jerry Brown Administration.

“Employees at Fresno-based Gerawan Farming voted overwhelmingly to cut ties with the United Farm Workers union in a decertification election five years ago. The extent of the union’s defeat, however, was not known until Tuesday when the California Agricultural Labor Relations Board (ALRB) finally released the results. The ballots cast showed that 1,098 employees voted to leave the union, while only 197 voted to stay—a margin in excess of the 640 ballots the union sought to disqualify, which played a major role in the ALRB decision not to tally the vote.”

The ALRB is controlled by the Governor—and he knew the workers wanted to be free from the corruption and extortion of the United Farm Workers Union.  The ALRB is about protecting unions, not workers.

Ask any Democrat candidate, should the votes of workers be counted in a timely fashion and not have to spend millions to get electoral justice.  Do not be surprised if they refuse to answer.
