The United Farm Workers (UFW) said it was pleased with the agreement.
But in 2012, UFW returned, demanding a fresh round of negotiations based on the 1990 election.
Gerawan consented, but after a few months at the table, UFW balked again.
In 1990, UFW was voted in as the labor representative at Gerawan Farms, a family-owned employer of thousands of workers.
One does not have to be a Koch brother to detect how badly the conduct of UFW and the ALRB stinks.
But two years after that, UFW walked away from its negotiations with Gerawan, unable to muster adequate worker support.
This is what UFW asked for, even though almost no employees remained at Gerawan who voted in the union back in 1990.
