Local 5 Ag Division Organizes Monterey Mushroom Subsidiary

Local 5’s Agricultural Division has successfully organized Mushroom Farms Inc. a subsidiary of Monterey Mushroom, located in Aromas, CA.

80 new members, and more coming on board on a seasonal basis, are now a part of Local 5. On January 4 the workers at the facility, who produce some of the finest gourmet mushrooms anywhere, voted overwhelmingly to join the union.

The new members at Mushroom Farms Inc. are part of a coordinated effort in the Ag Division to bring more workers in the mushroom industry under the Local 5 banner.
