AB 2183 (Stone) is the latest attempt by the United Farm Workers to implement card check legislation in California. This bill was introduced early in 2022 despite the veto of the previous bill on this subject, AB 616 (Stone), by Governor Newsom last year. AB 2183 is currently in the Assembly Appropriations Committee and is likely to move to the Assembly Floor the week of May 23rd. WG has been very active in opposition to the bill.

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) Standards Board is scheduled to meet on April 21, 2022 to decide whether to readopt a fourth iteration of its current COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS). The ETS applies to all workers not covered by the Aerosol Transmissible Disease Standard or those working alone/remotely and requires employers to create, implement and maintain an up-to-date COVID-19 Prevention Program.
