Foster Farms Avoids Picketing at Livingston, CA Plant

    

According to the Modesto Bee the dispute between Foster Farms and the United Farm Workers concerning the renegotiation of a contract due to expire in October is still subject to negotiation. The current contract is with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

Employees elected to establish a new contract under the United Farm Workers. During the last week of March a strike was threatened which would have had consequences to both company and its workers.

  

On Wednesday, March 29th, Ira Brill, a spokesperson for Foster Farms, stated “We continue to hope we can conclude a settlement with the United Farm Workers.”
