“IT IS CERTIFIED that a majority of the valid ballots have been cast for ‘No Union’ in the representation election conducted on November 5, 2013, among the agricultural employees of Gerawan Farming, Inc., in the State of California, and that the United Farm Workers of America thereby lost its prior status as the exclusive representative of the employees for the purpose of collective bargaining, as defined in Labor Code section 1155.2, subdivision (a).”

Congratulations to the Gerawan Family and to your employees. This victory was the result of courage and pride, and dedication to achieving justice no matter what. Congratulations also to Gerawan counsel Ron Barsamian and David Schwarz, and their entire legal team.
