Glossary Term – Event
Laborers from the National Farm Workers Association and the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee initiated the Delano grape strike and boycott. The strike continued into 1966, when the NFWA and AWOC merged to become the United Farmworkers Organizing Committee. The UFOC was led by César Chávez, Dolores Huerta, and others. The strike and boycott ended in 1970 when the UFOC secured three-year contracts with grape growers.
