Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has vetoed a bill that would have created a card check election process for farm workers seeking union representation.
S.B. 789, which was introduced by Senate President Pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg, is similar to bills Schwarzenegger also vetoed in 2007 and 2008.
If enacted, S.B. 789, which was backed by the United Farm Workers, would have allowed agricultural employees to choose a collective-bargaining representative by submitting a petition to the state Agricultural Labor Relations Board, along with representation cards signed by more than 50% of current employees.
In his veto message, Schwarzenegger stated, “This process fundamentally alters an employee’s right to a secret-ballot election that allows the employee to choose, in the privacy of the voting booth without coercion or manipulation, whether or not to be represented.”
