United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 152 has its first cannabis workers.
More than 60 employees from The Botanist, a cannabis dispensary operating out of Egg Harbor Township, joined the EHT-based labor union in January. Once certificated, representatives from the union will begin negotiating a contract.
“This new partnership is a win for all involved,” Local 152 President Brian String said. “These workers will be able to decide on the terms of their employment and The Botanist will maintain a dedicated and knowledgeable staff. As a union, we look forward to introducing these new members to the power of a union contract.”
