It shall be an unfair labor practice for a farm laborer or an employee organization representing farm laborers to strike any agricultural employer. The term “strike” shall mean, for the purposes of this section, any strike or other concerted stoppage of work or slowdown by farm laborers.


It shall be an unfair labor practice for an agricultural employer to:


lockout its laborers.

refuse to continue all the terms of an expired agreement until a new agreement is negotiated;


discourage union organization or to discourage an employee from participating in a union organizing drive, engaging in protected concerted activity, or otherwise exercising the rights guaranteed under this article.
