In California, agricultural workers and Latino rights leaders gathered over the weekend for the United Farm Workers Union (UFW) convention. This year, the union celebrated its 50th anniversary and participants honored past achievements and looked to the future. While there is a friendlier political environment for unions under the governorship of Democrat Jerry Brown, the UFW is struggling to increase its membership.
