Vid: Forced to Unionize—Is this Cesar Chavez's Legacy?


"If Cesar were here today, he certainly wouldn't be supporting what's being done now, which is a union trying to impose itself on employees," says Dan Gerawan, co-owner of Gerawan Farms, one of the nation's largest producers of peaches, plums, and nectarines and a major employer of California farm workers. 

Gerawan Farms and some of its employees are in the midst of a fight with the United Farm Workers (UFW) union, which claims to represent Gerawan's workers, despite not having collected dues or bargained on behalf of them for more than two decades.
