Today in Labor History
Today in labor history, July 29, 1970:  After five years of strikes and boycotts, table grape growers in California sign their first collective bargaining agreement with the United Farm Workers.  The contract—which covered over 10,000 workers—ended labor contracting and established seniority and hiring rights; included an immediate wage increase; and provided for fresh water and toilets in the fields, and a medical plan.
