Taking a rather circuitous route from Madera to Sacramento, United Farm Workers of America members and supporters stopped in Lodi late Tuesday afternoon after spending most of the day in Stockton spreading their message, especially to the Latino population.

After light breakfast, a blessing and Holy Communion this morning in Hale Park, marchers will continue into Galt today and meet farmworkers there. By Sunday, they will be at the State Capitol for a rally intended to encourage Gov. Jerry Brown to sign some UFW-backed legislation.

    Like EVERY union, they all start off with good intentions. Unfortunately, as we now see, they end up being the "strong arm unions". Their origional concept has grown to influence political actions and price American business out of the global market. They especially have NO place in our government entities. Union graft and corruption goes all the way to the oval office.

    Anyone who has read or researched the formation of the UFW would not make ridiculous comments such as that below.

    These hardworking people went through hell just to gain the same rights as the average American worker. They had to do it in extreme secrecy, meeting in a different location each time for fear of physical violence from thugs hired by farmers. They did it through the perseverence of Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta and the thousands of individuals who sacrificed greatly so future generations could work in semi-decent conditions.

    To dismiss this group as a "strong arm union" is simply ignorance.

    Gov. Jerry Brown to sign some UFW-backed legislation.

    Im sure it will be exciting for these people to meet the godfather of strong arm unions...
    Mr Brown is highly thought of by them.
