Yes, you are reading this correctly. The Union that made its name on protecting the rights of Agricultural workers will have to pay out over $885,000 in back pay and another $235,000 in penalties. The Union is going to appeal, but many of you will find this gratifying. There is not much more to report on this right now, but this could be a turning point for politician who fall over themselves to align with this organization that only represents about 3% of the agriculture workers in California. Perhaps we will see our politicians using a little more common sense. Or, maybe we are hoping for too much. Still, the irony of this story is not lost on agricultural employers everywhere.
