Harvest mechanization and agricultural trade unionism: Obreros Unidos in Wisconsin

, : Harvest mechanization and agricultural trade unionism: Obreros Unidos in Wisconsin. Labor Law Journal (March): 166-173

Migrant labour forms less than 10% of the USA agricultural labour force but its disadvantaged position gives it a particular poignancy. This paper traces the struggles of a movement (Obreros Unidos or united workers) to gain rights of representation and bargaining power for migrant harvesting workers. The eventual demise of Obreros Unidos was due to the mechanization of the harvesting of the particular crop - cucumbers.
