Fair Treatment for Farm Workers Act (SB 104) has passed the CA Senate
and Assembly and will shortly go to Governor Jerry Brown to sign.
The United Farm Workers has won solid laws to protect California farm
workers who provide more than half of our nation’s produce; however, for
over 400,000 field workers migrating among 80,000 farms, these laws
have not and cannot be enforced by the state of California.
Fair Treatment for Farm Workers Act will ensure the laws on the books
do become the laws in the fields. This new law will make it easier for farm workers to have a union and thus have the opportunity to speak up and protect themselves.
