UFW represents the agricultural employees of long-time Western Growers member San Joaquin Tomato Growers (SJTG) pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) that was imposed upon on the employer  in a Mandatory Mediation and Conciliation (MMC) proceeding. UFW filed a case with the Agricultural Labor Relations Board (ALRB) claiming SJTG failed to comply with the CBA. San Joaquin responded that the union failed to provide evidence of the allegations, and even if such violations had occurred, the exclusive remedy would be the grievance-arbitration procedure contained in the CBA.
