California Farm Board Backs Ruling On Election Interference

The decision Friday by the Agricultural Labor Relations Board marked the latest victory for organized labor in the decades-long fight.

The board unanimously affirmed the ruling by Administrative Law Judge Mark Soble to set aside a 2013 election held by workers at Gerawan Farming Inc.
