' In 1976, at the peak of the fruit and vegetable harvest season, cannery workers walked out closing the can- aeries for II days. That strike cost' California's fruit and vegetable growers $'90 million and left thousands of workers unemployed. The total value of California's winegrape production to growers alone is in excess of $,500 million. CAWG asked that immediate action be taken to enact HR 3542, the Perishable Food Protection Act currently assigned to the House Committee on Education and Labor. HR 3542 provides an effective ar- bitration strategy which secures for workers those contract modifications to which they are entitled while main- taining the level of employment in the industry to ensure a steady harvest of highly perishable food.

I$&16 Congressman Clausen urges completion of budget before election Congressman Don Clausen today urged the House of Representatives' leadership to complete action on the Budget before, rather than after, ad- journing for the November 4 General Election. There has been a great deal of speculation in Washington that post- ponement of action on the Budget is being planned in order to avoid publicizing until after the election the fact that, contrary to earlier predic- tions, next year's Budget will be tin,- balanced. "There is no justification for a pot- election, rump  of Congre," said an irate Don Clamum. "The people "have a right to see their elected representatives stand up and be counted on the Budget and other vital immes before they go to the polls. Let's get on with the job," he urged. One of the major pieces of business which appears to be Mated for post- election session is the Second Budget Resolution. The First Budget lution provided for a 1200 million, us and increased revenues of 4.2 billion. The Semnd Budget Resolution is expected to assume a spending deficit of $25 to $30 billion for Fiscal Year 1981. "Postponement of consideration of the Second Budget Resolution util after the election would g/ve many people here in Washington the im pression that Congress is avoiding consideraton of the Budget until ft the voters go to the polls," Clauson continued. "The House Ltdership should ex- pedite action on the remaining legislation beforeNovember so that we can get this country moving again," Clausen concluded,
