DOL Fresno Farm Worker Training Recap

Nearly 400 farm labor contractors, crew leaders, supervisors and growers gathered at a Fresno, Calif., training workshop on Jan. 15 to learn about the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act. Sponsored by Nisei Farmers League and the Fresno County Farm Bureau Federation, the workshop’s discussion turned to illegal and unsafe transportation of Central Valley farmworkers after two recent fatal vehicular accidents in the area. Presenters took questions on vehicle inspection and safety requirements, vehicle insurance and driver licensing.

“Transportation safety for farmworkers is an important part of the Wage and Hour Division’s enforcement responsibility,” said Nora Pedraza, the division’s assistant district director in Fresno. “Training sessions like this for crew leaders and supervisors give us the opportunity to get our message out to a large number of people and improve the safety of transportation for farmworkers.”
