In the copious volumes written about Cesar Chavez and how he formed the first farm workers' union in America, there's little mention of Dolores Huerta, although she was his equal partner and co-founder of the union. With unprecedented access to Dolores and her children, the film reveals the raw, personal stories behind the public figure.

SCCCD backs undocumented students

Tuesday night area community college leaders passed a resolution to protect the future of their undocumented students. In 2012, President Obama took executive action allowing certain undocumented immigrants who entered the country as minors to temporarily avoid deportation. The program is known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program and many fear President-elect Trump may do away with it.

    WEINGARTEN RIGHTS: WHAT ARE THEY?

    If you find yourself being questioned by a supervisor and if you think that questioning will lead to disciplinary action against you, invoke your Weingarten rights. These rights were established by the United States Supreme Court in 1975. By claiming them, you are entitled to union representation and the questions must come to an end. If necessary, inform your supervisor that you are invoking your rights. At that point, you are entitled to union representation, and the interview must cease until a loyal union representative is at your side. Weingarten rights apply to both part-time and full-time faculty members. Below are your Weingarten rights:

    “ If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working condition, I respectfully request that my union steward, representative, or officer be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not answer any questions.”
