ALRB. Gerawan Farms dominated ALRB activities in Fall 2014. An Administrative Law Judge on September 29, 2014 began a hearing on unfair labor practice charges filed by the UFW and Gerawan dealing with a decertification election held November 5, 2013. The UFW asked the ALRB to set aside the election, while many of the workers who voted and Gerawan asked the ALRB to count the votes.
The California Court of Appeal in Fresno in October 2014 asked for information on whether the contract imposed on Gerawan in 2013 after mandatory mediation would be null and void if the ALRB concludes that Gerawan workers in fact voted to decertify the UFW. In November 2014, the same Court of Appeal agreed to hear a Gerawan charge that the state law mandating Mandatory Mediation and Conciliation (MMC) is unconstitutional.
