IRVINE, Calif. (June 28, 2011) –Statement by Western Growers President and CEO Tom Nassif on Gov. Jerry Brown’s veto of Senate Bill 104, the “card check” bill:

“We commend the governor’s courageous veto today of Senate Bill 104. We are heartened that the governor has rededicated himself to this important principle, that the secret ballot must be the exclusive means of determining the true wishes of the workers. Gov. Brown has done the right thing and preserved the heart and soul of the Agricultural Labor Relations Act.”
