Nomination ballots to elect Western Growers’ Board of Directors to a two-year term (2023 and 2024) were emailed to all Regular Members on June 10 and again on June 20, 2022. Our secure online voting platform focuses on privacy, security, and verifiability — all of which are paramount to hosting an honest election. 

The nomination ballot is the first step in a two-part process. It lists prospective candidates from your district for inclusion on the official ballot. The official ballot will be emailed to you in late August to vote to fill the allotted board of director seats.

The California Supreme Court has granted review of the decision of the Fifth District Court of Appeal in Gerawan Farming, Inc. v. Agricultural Labor Relations Board. The case will consider whether the “Mandatory Mediation and Conciliation” (MMC) law is unconstitutional and, if not, may an employer oppose a certified union’s request for referral to the MMC process by asserting that the union has “abandoned” the bargaining unit.

The Agricultural Labor Relations Board (ALRB) will be traveling to key agricultural areas in September 2015 to solicit input from farmworkers, employers and interested members of the public on its proposal to promulgate a rule that permits ALRB staff to visit agricultural work sites. The visits are intended for the purpose of educating farmworkers and field supervisors about their rights and responsibilities under the Agricultural Labor Relations Act (Act).
