WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
GWA needs you to support our industry and place some harvester and/or packing facility job
orders with the Department of Labor.
GWA will do all the paperwork in filling out the orders, etc.
We have developed two generic job orders – for MELON HARVESTER and PACKING FACILITY WORKER.
you can fill them out and fax (706-883-8215) or
email them back to us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
GWA will do all of the work in filing out and submitting the forms for you.
Listed at the end of this email are the instructions if you want to file your own Job Order
with DOL but if you want GWA to handle it for you, we are here to help you.
We know we have a serious labor shortage for all crops that are now being harvested.
Ag Commissioner Gary Black and Labor Commissioner Mark Butler both are aware of this situation and
working together to put the force of their two offices behind finding workers for our growers.
Commissioner Butler has committed man power to help identify unemployed Georgians, registered with DOL
that may be able to help us out of this crisis.
Thanks – and give me a call if you have any questions – 706-845-8575 or 1-877-994-3842.
