The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (which includes Arizona and California) has revived a claim for immigration and travel expenses brought by H-2A harvest workers who claim that costs they incurred in procuring employment and travel to the United States dropped their pay below the minimum wage during their first week of employment in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

After a series of back and forth decisions between the California Agriculture Labor Relations Board (ALRB) and one of its district offices, the ALRB main office approved a request granting Gerawan farm workers the opportunity to hold an election today to determine if they want to forego representation by the United Farm Workers (UFW).  The landmark decision and today’s historic election has the potential to affect many other workers who have never voted for UFW representation.
