Slaying the Big Pickle


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Ohio-based labor union, Farm Labor Organizing Committee, seeks to organize a farm worker union in the state. Their target is the Mt., Olive Pickle Company, the largest pickle company in the South. The union seeks collective bargaining, higher wages, and better living conditions for workers. Unless the company agrees to talks by March 17, 1999, the union will begin a regional boycott of Mt. Olive products.
