American Labor Alliance History
The genesis of American Labor Alliance grew out of the founders’ experience in labor relations. The first set of work began in late 1980s with professional basketball athletes tied to international basketball clubs in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina and NBA clubs such as the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers.
In 1992, the founders were invited to the United Farm Workers in Keene, California compound to consult with the late Cesar Chavez in the area of financial strategies and retirement and credit union. This was verified by a writer from the AG Accent newspaper. Those ideas began to form benefit programs that are practiced today.
The year 2000 became a banner season where one of the founders were the operator and initiator of the One Stop Shop for employment starting the Workforce Connection of Fresno County, California, a program operation serving the 250,000 unemployed.
Circa 1999, we entered into the Farm Labor contracting business. The first crew of contractors represented over 5,000 farm workers. In 2002, we developed and organized Farmworker Enterprise Foundation as a way to assist needy farm worker families. We grew with 20 other farm labor contractors and established Agricultural Contracting Service Association in 2004.
