Lettuce grower to negotiate
with farm workers' union
PROGRAM IN JEWISH STUDIES
SALINAS, Calif. W) - C e s a r
Chavez' United Farm Workers Or-
ganizing Committee has scored a
second major breakthrough in an
interunion struggle t h a t has
sharply curtailed production in
the nation's "salad bowln"
Freshpict Foods, Inc. announc-
ed Friday it is canceling its con-
tract with the Teamsters Union
and will begin negotiations with
UFWOC. UFWOC claims support
of 90 per cent of the workers in
the 100-mile-long Salinas Valley,
which grows 90 per cent of the
nation's head lettuce.
Inter Harvest Co., the majorl
U.S. lettuce producer, h a d an-

beginning talks to switch its un-

Salinas Valley Growers, Shippers
and Vegetable Association.
The P rex "estimate of the sit-

w a s a meeting of growers,...
there is no thought of joining'
Freshpict in their negotiations."
Teamsters supporters, including
farmers and growers, picketed In-
ter' Harvest Friday and blocked
harvesting and marketing of-crops
to protest the negotiations with
UFWOC. The pickets said t h e y
had no union affiliation, but
Teamsters drivers refused to cross
the picket lines.

fused to rescind contracts signed
with Teamsters the month before.
