Ask the California Agricultural Labor Relations Board: Where's the enforcement?

Are you going to allow Gerawan to be a Grinch?

From Omaha Steve's OP in GD

The state's Agricultural Labor Relations Board ordered the three-year contract into immediate effect on November 19, 2013, but Gerawan has refused to implement it. They are denying their workers the right to finally enjoy the benefits of union representation and hard fought improvements at their workplace. Besides including substantial wage increases, additional paid holidays -- such as Christmas Day, and other worker protections, the contract also provides retroactive pay for some of these benefits.

"We could use this extra money they owe us in delayed benefits to have an even happier holiday season. Unfortunately, Gerawan Farming continues to deny us that right, said Guadalupe Martinez. "This has caused us - Gerawan workers - the inability to benefit from a union contract, adding much stress and frustration to us and our families this holiday season."
