. . . to fund UFW bosses’ jobs-for-life

The ALRB is shaking down farm workers to force them to pay the permanent jobs of UFW bosses.

Take a look at how long the UFW leadership [the UFW removed the link] has been on the union payroll at the workers’ expense – even as those leaders drove the UFW into the ground:

  • Arturo S. Rodriguez, UFW President. On the payroll for 45 years, since 1972.
  • Sergio Guzman, UFW Secretary-Treasurer. On the payroll for 21 years, since 1996.
  • Irv Hershenbaum (above), UFW First Vice President. On the payroll for 42 years, since 1975.
  • Efren Barajas, UFW Second Vice President. On the payroll for 32 years, since 1985.
  • Giev Kashkooli, UFW Third Vice President. On the payroll for 16 years, since 2001.
  • Armando Elenes, UFW National Vice President. On the payroll for 20 years, since 1997.
