"My Time With the Farmworkers"

My Time With the Farmworkers

I was on loan from the UAW from April 1975 until march 1976.  I started at Gallo wine in Turlock CA.  I went from there to Salinas where I did NLRB work and was in the Bud Antel election and others in the Salinas area.  We moved to the El Centro area next .  There I did more CNLRB elections and negotiated several local agreements.  I was in and out of the Interharvest master agreement negotiations in Bakersfield.  I met Cesar many times during this period.
The time that I spent with the farm workers was a great experience in my life.
