Farm Workers in Washington State History Project

News coverage 1933-2002:
 Farm workers, Strikes, Boycotts

[Home] [History] [Timeline] [Oral Histories] [Photos] [Documents]  [News Coverage]

Below are readable digital copies of more than 500 articles about the UFW, farm workers, and farm labor conditions that have appeared in Washington newspapers since 1933. Click on the title to read the article. This is an extraordinary resource for anyone wanting to do further research of these issues and also for getting a sense of how journalists have shaped popular understandings of farm workers and their unions.

The content covers three eras of farm labor activism: 1933 during the Yakima hop strike; 1968-1975 during the grape boycott and initial campaign to build the UFW; and 1995-2002 following the Chateau St. Michelle campaign.

Sharon Walker began this project and created the 1995-2002 section. Michael Schulze-Oechtering Casteñada and Edgar Flores digitized the UW Daily articles for the 1968-1975 period. Stephanie Adler collected the 1971-1972 Yakima campaign articles. Oscar Rosales Castañeda assembled the 1933 section.
