UFCW Unionized Workers at Another California Marijuana Company

The United #Food and Commercial #Workers #Union (#UFCW) claimed another #victory in its quest to recruit more #members within the #marijuana industry when workers at Sweet #Flower #Cannabis, a small #Southern #California #retail chain, voted to join the union.

Roughly 70 #employees at the four-store chain voted to unionize and will now start negotiating #contracts with management, according to a #news release from UFCW Local 770 in #LosAngeles. Sweet Flower recently received a license for a retail shop in #CulverCity, and a labor #peace agreement signed by the company will allow staff at the new location to also join the UFCW, according to the release.

The UFCW represents roughly 10,000 workers in the #legal #US marijuana sector to date, according to the release. This year alone, the labor union has won a series of unionization votes in various companies and states, including California-based companies #Stiizy, #Catalyst and Perfect Union as well as marijuana businesses in #Illinois, #Massachusetts, #NewJersey and #NewYork.

The #International #Brotherhood of Teamsters also has been making inroads in the marijuana industry with unionization victories at businesses in California and Illinois.
