the boycott thus far is having

"We're very pleased with it,"
said Ganz. "Most of the dele-
gations and many of the Dem-
ocratic state conventions en-
dorsed the boycott and urged
people not to buy lettuce."
"The Democratic party is the
largest political organization in
the United States," he added,
"and having that kind- of sup-
port and the fact that it's en-
dorsed right in the platform is
very helpful. We're waiting to
e what the Republicans are
going to do."
The boycott extends to all
lettuce which does not carry
the UFW's stamp, Ganz said.
About 15 per cent of the total
lettuce crop in Californiagand
Arizorna is harvested by grow-
ers which have contracts with
the UFW, he added. However,
many other growers have con-
tracts with the teamsters, which
has led to a jurisdictional dis-
pute between the two unions.
Ganz said the current cam-
paign is directed primarily at
the general public, asking peo-
ple to sign a pledge not to buy
non-UFW lettuce. Each pledge
that is signed, he added, costs a
grower about $15 a year in lost
