Have you ever wondered how different parties in the fresh produce supply chain are implementing sustainability practices? Are they doing more than your business? Less? Are there new and innovative ways to approach sustainability? If these are questions you have asked yourself, consider joining Western Growers for an informational webinar related to three current sustainability efforts and perspectives.  Our featured speakers include experts in sustainability in the almond, wine and food service sectors and they will provide an overview of, the background on and current status of each of their efforts. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear about these three programs.

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.
