The Agricultural Labor Relations Board is an independent governing body that oversees relations between California Central Valley farmers and the United Farmworkers of America, the union that wants to represent them.
The ALRB is supposed to be unbiased. But if that’s so, WHY is Silas Shawver, their regional director, seen here wearing a UFW tshirt?
Is it a harmless mistake?
Considering that Mr. Shawver is pushing to destroy ballots in the farmworker’s election to decertify the union, it’s more likely that this picture represents the real relationship between the ALRB and the union it’s supposed to monitor.
When the UFW says jump, Silas Shawver says how high.
