Opportunities for Growers Interested in Labor Issues
The California Avocado Commission (CAC) would like to make growers who are interested in labor issues aware of two opportunities.
The San Diego County Farm Bureau (SDCFB) Labor Committee is looking for interested participants to join the newly formed group. The committee will examine means of collaborating with federal officials to address immigration reform, discuss state labor rules and labor pools and provide new ideas concerning labor issues that affect the agricultural industry in San Diego County.
The committee will hold its first meeting in mid- to late-August. Interested growers should send an email to email@example.com.
Agricultural employers also are encouraged to complete the California Farm Bureau Federation’s Agricultural Labor Availability Study. The short survey will provide the Bureau with information that is important to helping them find workable labor solutions. The online survey, which takes approximately five minutes to complete, must be completed by August 9.
Those who complete the survey may do so anonymously or they can choose to provide contact information if they are interested in speaking with the California Farm Bureau Federation concerning labor shortages and immigration reform. The Bureau will not share contact information with outside parties.
