#17-303 Arnaudo Brothers, L.P. v. Agricultural Labor Relations Bd., S244322. (F072420; 14 Cal.App.5th 22.)

#17-303 Arnaudo Brothers, L.P. v. Agricultural Labor Relations Bd., S244322. (F072420; 14 Cal.App.5th 22.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed in part and reversed in part a decision of the Agricultural Labor Relations Board. The court ordered briefing deferred pending decision in Tri-Fanucchi Farms v. Agricultural Labor Relations Bd., S227270 (#15-149), which presents the following issues: (1) May an employer assert as a defense to a request for collective bargaining under the Agricultural Labor Relations Act (Lab. Code, § 1140, et seq.) that the certified union has “abandoned” the bargaining unit? (2) Did the Board err in granting “make whole” relief (Lab. Code, § 1160.3) as a remedy for the employer’s refusal to bargain with the union?
