In a victory for the United Farm Workers, the state Agricultural Labor Relations Board on Friday threw out election results that would have decertified the union as the bargaining agent for workers at a unit of E.&J. Gallo Winery, the state's largest vintner. The decision upheld a finding by an administrative law judge that supervisors at the company's upscale Gallo of Sonoma unit had illegally assisted workers who were circulating petitions requesting an election to decertify the UFW.

One of Los Angeles Mayor James K. Hahn's loyal labor supporters is facing a stiff challenge to his leadership of the firefighters union in an election that could affect how much money and manpower the union will put behind the mayor's campaign. Pat McOsker, whose brother is the mayor's chief of staff, has headed United Firefighters of Los Angeles City since 2002 and this year said the union would tap its $1.5-million political action fund to support Hahn.

Washington hotel workers will vote Monday on whether to authorize a strike at 14 unionized hotels, a union spokesman said. The vote will come the same day union hotel workers in Los Angeles cast ballots and one day before a similar vote in San Francisco. The union, called Unite Here, wants the three cities to get contracts that would expire in 2006, putting them in line with contracts in other North American cities.

Unhappy with their union leadership, about 3,500 food-service workers at Disneyland and California Adventure have voted to split from their local and form a new one. The vote comes after allegations of a tainted election and a two-year struggle for power within the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees Local 681, which had about 7,000 members in Orange County and Long Beach.

But the United Auto Workers said its members would report to work as normal today despite the vote. More than 9,000 Caterpillar workers in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Tennessee have been working without a contract since UAW members rejected a previous company proposal April 25.

Doctors who work for Los Angeles County have voted to part ways with the union that had represented them since 1999, ending an unusual alliance between 800 medical professionals and organized labor. The physicians voted 331 to 229 to leave the Union of American Physicians and Dentists, according to ballots cast in the last few weeks and tallied Thursday. Many doctors complained that they were uncomfortable with the hardball negotiating tactics of labor unions and dissatisfied with the results.

Four years ago, doctors working in Los Angeles County's public hospitals and clinics delivered a significant victory for organized labor when they voted to join a union. The county's 800 doctors are once again in the midst of an election -- this time on whether to drop out of the Union of American Physicians and Dentists. The balloting, conducted by mail, ends June 18.
