Western Growers, along with five other organizations representing agriculture and the general business community, has filed an amicus brief supporting Gerawan Farming Company’s challenge of California’s “mandatory mediation and conciliation process.”

Gerawan successfully challenged the MMC provision of the Agricultural Labor Relations Act in the California court of appeal on constitutional grounds. That ruling is now on appeal to the California Supreme Court.

The Second Annual Forbes AgTech Summit will bring together over 500 of the brightest minds, from global agriculture and Silicon Valley, to help tackle the world’s most critical challenges in agriculture. The event will showcase the latest innovations for growers, investors and stakeholders, as well as foster lively debate and generate rich networking opportunities.

As a benefit of Western Growers’ strategic partnership with Forbes, members will receive $250 off the regular admission price. We encourage all members to attend this premier agtech event!
