Transcript Page 8 BROADSIDE June 1972 Thank you Caura The year 1971 has been a very successful year for Houston NOW in many ways. Often, persons willing to take on the large responsibilities necessary to make NOW a vigorous and vital organization are not recognized for their efforts. Houston NOW would like to publicly thank Program Chairone, Laura Douglas, who has continually provided excellent programs for our monthly business meetings. A partial list of the interesting speakers Laura has provided ranges from the Dean of Women, St. Thomas University, a Houston Policewoman and early this year, many timely political speakers. UNITED FARM WORKERS DEFEAT NLRB SUIT Last March 9th the National Labor Relations Board filed suit in California Federal Court to obtain a national injunction against the boycott activities of the United Farm Workers, AFL-CIO. After a ten year, non-violent struggle, the farm workers of this country had begun to gain benefits and protections together with a feeling of hope in choosing their own destinies. The NLRB suit threatened not only the survival of the farm worker's union but the sense of purpose they had nurtured so diligently. On May 4 the UFW triumphantly announced the NLRB had withdrawn its suit and the right of farm workers to seek support through the boycott had been re-affirmed. The farm workers also announced at this time the re-institution of the lettuce boycott. As you may recall, the lettuce boycott was first introduced in September of 1970, however, a moratorium was declared in March of 1971 in order that representatives of the farm workers union could begin negotiations with the lettuce growers. The farm workers meet weekly with the growers and offered to give up certain major clauses in the interest of negotiation. It appeared lettuce growers intended to stall negotiations through the 1970-71 harvest, while seeking legislation to outlaw strikes and boycotts. Although the UFW feels very strongly about its committment to bring unionization to the vegetable industry through negotiations rather than through another long strike and boycott, the UFW feel they no longer have a choice in this matter. A number of Houston organizations have publicly declared support for the boycott, including the Texas Women's Political Caucus. The UFW ask all the people of Houston to join the national boycott of all non-union head lettuce. Their position is clear -- United Farm Worker lettuce or no lettuce at all.
