The Times misrepresented the position of California growers on the issue of funding for the Agricultural Labor Relations Act ("UFW, Growers Reverse Tactics on ALRB," April 30).
Contrary to what was reported in the Labor column by Harry Bernstein, California growers support funding of the state farm labor law only if it conforms to the national labor law.
Directors of the Western Growers Assn., who are growers, voted to support funding for the ALRB only if it conforms to the National Labor Relations Act.
WGA repeatedly has sponsored state legislation to conform or amend the law. Earlier this year, three bills were killed by the Assembly Labor and Employment Committee, a committee heavily influenced by labor interests.
