Campbell Soup Co. and the Farm Labor Organizing Committee announced in Toledo, Ohio, that they secretly had reached an understanding last month that would end a six-year-old boycott of Campbell products by the farm workers’ union. Campbell will encourage growers to send representatives to a commission that will set up guidelines for elections on Ohio and Michigan farms that contract with Campbell, a Campbell spokesman said. However, growers would not be required to take part in the agreement.
