Abstract:

In 1970 three lettuce growers rescinded signed labor contracts with the Teamsters, and negotiated contracts with the United Farm Workers Union. Two years later, at contract renewal time, negotiations resulted in the renewal of only one contract. The reasons for each firms signing in 1970, as well as for their courses of action in 1972 are presented. A brief description of the evolution of the United Farm Workers Union as well as the position of agricultural labor relative to the National Labor Relations Act is presented in order to better understand the reasons for the controversy in the Salinas Valley.
