Preparing For Secret Ballot Elections At DiGiorgio Corporation

The boycott against DiGiorgio resulted in an agreement to hold secret ballot elections for the company’s farmworkers. These elections would be administered by the American Arbitration Association. The ballot would give workers one of three choices: “UFWOC” – “Teamsters” – “No Union”. Cesar Chavez, Fred Ross, Dolores Huerta and student volunteers examine the eligibility list of DiGiorgio workers who would be eligible to vote.
