Focus on the Farmworkers: The Union

Reflective of the ideological roots of the United Farmworkers Union (UFW), Larry Kleinman, co-founded Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (PCUN) in Oregon. In the 70’s, seasonal workers were facing challenges while contracting with table grape farmers. PCUN was a response to these challenges and organized with the capacity to address issues for seasonal workers, both within the workplace and outside. Larry Kleinman speaks in this six-part series about immigration, struggles for basic farm worker rights, and the fight for improved living conditions – all issues that remind us to support farm labor, both in their right to organize and at a broader level.
