The Agricultural Marketing and Bargaining Board was created
by Public Act 344 of 1972, which called for the determination of appropriate
definitions of bargaining units for an agricultural commodity. The
bipartisan board administers accreditation procedures, designates members of
the bargaining unit annually, implements arbitration procedures, and protects
the rights of both growers and handlers against unfair practices.
These appointments are subject to Article V, Section 6 of
the Michigan State Constitution of 1963. They stand confirmed unless
