This year, and particularly since the passage of SB 126, organized labor has pushed the envelope with new organizing tactics, aggressive campaign strategies, and innovative techniques designed to catch unwary employers off guard. Thanks to these tactics, the UFW has won two of three elections that were held in 2012. The UFW is reinvigorated and prepared to scale up its organizing efforts, particularly against unprepared agricultural employers.

After the FDA released of the Produce and Preventive Controls Rule on Jan. 4 several opportunities to learn about them have been offered. Western Growers invites you to hear about our preliminary analysis of the Preventive Controls Rule. This webinar is meant to provide an overview of this rule, highlight the key differences with current GMPs as well as existing commodity specific guidelines, discuss items on which FDA is requesting comments; and, gather questions.
