En un movimiento sorprendente, el ALRB hoy a las 11:10 am por fax desocupó la decisión del director regional de expulsar la petición de desertificación de los trabajadores agrícolas para tener una elección. Esta última acción pretende una elección que tendrá lugar el Martes 5 de Noviembre de 2013 para determinar si la Unión de Campesinos de América (UFW) representará a los trabajadores agrícolas de Gerawan Farming, Inc.

“Esta ha sido una montaña rusa emocional para Silvia López y sus colegas,” dijo Paul Bauer, el abogado que representa a López. “Ella está encantada de finalmente tener el derecho a votar sobre representación, y tenemos que seguir asegurándonos que se mantiene la integridad del proceso electoral.”

In a surprising move, the ALRB today at 11:10 a.m. via fax vacated the regional director’s decision to dismiss the farmworkers’ decertification petition to hold an election.  This newest action prompts an election to be held on Tuesday, November 5, 2013, to determine whether the United Farm Workers union will represent the farmworkers at Gerawan Farming, Inc.

“This has been an emotional rollercoaster for Silvia Lopez and her colleagues,” said Paul Bauer, attorney representing Lopez. “She is thrilled to finally have the right to vote on representation, and we must continue to ensure the integrity of the election process is maintained.”

FRESNO, CA. – At 9 a.m. today, Gerawan farmworkers will protest at the Visalia ALRB office the decision by the Regional Director for Agricultural Labor Relations Board to block their right to vote on whether the United Farm Workers of America should represent them after disappearing for more than 20 years.
