Rural Migration News: UFW; ALRB; Unions
The UFW represented about 5,500 workers on 22 California farms with contracts in 2022. Governor Gavin Newsom signed AB 2183 in 2022, which created alternatives to in-person secret ballot elections on farms to determine whether workers want to be represented by a union, including having union organizers persuade a majority of workers to sign union authorization cards.
The UFW says that it helps farm workers achieve higher incomes, citing the four decades of representing Monterey Mushrooms, where year-round jobs offer up to $40,000 a year, double the $20,000 average of seasonal farm workers.
