Abstract
One of the most successful grassroots organizing campaigns in the USA in the area of agricultural labour relations since the 1965 California grape field strike has been that of the Farm Labour Organizing Committee (FLOC). Twenty-five years after its first organizing activities in 1968, FLOC administers six master agreements covering nearly 6000 farm workers on 120 family farms in Michigan and Ohio. This paper examines the achievements and development of the FLOC, and also looks at the prospects for the future.
