On This Day in 1970
After five years of strikes and boycotts, table grape growers in California sign their first collective bargaining agreement with the United Farm Workers.

How the Process Works
Updated On: Jan 16, 2019

HOW THE PROCESS WORKS

Step 1: The Authorization Card

Signing an authorization card enables the Local Union to file a petition for an election at the National Labor Relations Board. All cards are kept confidential and management does not get to see them.

Step 2: The Election

The National Labor Relations Board sends a representative to hold a secret ballot election. You will be allowed to vote during work hours. Neither the Company nor the Union will know how you voted. We will need 51% to win the election.

Step 3: The Contract

After winning the election, a meeting is scheduled for all employees who will be covered by the contract. At the meeting, your input will be needed as to what you want in your contract. During this meeting, you will also elect a group of people that you work with who will be part of the committee that will help the Union negotiate the contract. After the committee and the Union have meetings with the Company to negotiate the best contract they can, another meeting will be scheduled so you and your co-workers can vote on the contract.

Important note: Dues will not be paid until you and your co-workers accept a contract that you vote on. Dues are not retroactive.
