Host

NY's Agricultural Workforce Development Council



New York's Agricultural Workforce Development Council is hosting a webinar for all farm employees. See notice in English and Spanish below. Employers are asked to set up the webinar in breakrooms and meeting areas to help employees gain access.

Union organizers are aggressively contacting farm employees all across New York. Many farm employees are unfamiliar with unions and not sure what to do. New York's Ag Workforce Development Council will host Dr. Bob Ceglowski, consulting veterinarian and trusted advisor to dairy employees and managers, to discuss farm unions in a webinar delivered in Spanish. Topics will include: what unions are, the meaning and obligation of signing a union card, why farm employees may or may not want a union, and clarifying rumors and misinformation that are currently circulating in the farm community.

Attendees will receive the link to join the webinar after they have registered.
