Ag labor legislation known as card check is the focus of Ag Council’s latest podcast.  Join Emily and Tricia for a quick episode as they walk through the outcome of ag labor legislation, AB 616 (Stone), this year and what’s next, given that a new measure is being circulated again on this topic.


Ag Council appreciates Governor Newsom’s veto of AB 616 (Stone) in late September.  As reported in previous In the Know newsletters, the measure would have undermined the secret ballot for farmworkers when deciding union representation and eroded the supervisory role of the Ag Labor Relations Board.
