Does the excitement from watching the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits this past weekend have you in the mood to golf? Then sign up today for the Western Growers golf tournament during our 90th Annual Meeting in San Diego this November. Located on site at the Grand Del Mar, the Grand Golf Club features San Diego’s only Tom Fazio-designed course with its dramatic elevations, diverse bunkering and lush fairways.

The 2015 California Wage and Benefit Survey results are now available. The survey was conducted by the Farm Employers Labor Service (FELSSM), Western Growers and several other ag organizations and provides a reference for estimating pay rates, benefits and understanding compensation structures used by California agricultural firms. Fourteen on-the-farm jobs titles from supervisor to general laborer are included in the survey.

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).
