Getting into a pickle

Mt. Olive Pickle Co. agreed to pay more money for cucumbers and to “encourage” growers to recognize the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (affiliated with the AFL-CIO) in exchange for ending a five-year boycott. About 2,500 workers provided to farms by the North Carolina Growers Association have already signed authorization cards. There is a no-strike pledge (not sure how that is enforceable) and workers may receive between a 2 and 3% raise from Olive Pickle’s largesse (but ONLY when they pick cucumbers for Mt. Olive – other growers are still paying the lower rates). Which is good, since union dues are 2.5% annually.
