Alternative title: United Farm Workers, AFL-CIO Asks You to Boycott Grapes, Lettuce, and Gallo Wine Quote from document: “What a terrible irony it is that the very people who work and sacrifice to harvest the food we eat do not have enough food for their own children.” --Cesar Chavez Calls for: “Toilet facilities, and cool drinking water in the fieldsreasonable wagesstrict control of pesticide usagean end to child laborand the right to work under their own hiring hall.” Background information: "In 1962 Cesar [Chavez] founded the National Farm Workers Association, later to become the United Farm Workers (UFW). He was joined by Dolores Huerta and the union was born ...
