Recently the CWF was quoted exclusively in the Washignton Times. Jeffrey Scott Shapiro quoted our executive director, Matt Patterson, in his piece, "United Farm Workers, founded by Cesar Chavez, in standoff with Gerawan Farming" that was published Wednesday, August 19, 2015.
Shapiro quoted Patterson in part as saying, "these workers know what they’re doing. They don’t want to give their money to the unions, and even more important, it’s about freedom. The union wants 3 percent of their pay.”
