Canna Cabana employees vote Union Yes
April 21, 2020
Employees working as Budtenders at the Canna Cabana cannabis dispensary in Hamilton have voted yes to joining UFCW Local 175.
“We’re proud to be representing the first retail cannabis workers to join a Union,” said President Haggerty. “I welcome them to the membership of UFCW Local 175. I know they are looking forward to achieving improvements to their working conditions and we look forward to helping make sure their voices are heard.”
The 22 employees at the Hamilton location wanted to have a say in their work life and brought up a number of concerns that led them to seek representation with UFCW Local 175. Through bargaining, these workers want to achieve:
- Improved wages and benefits;
- Better scheduling;
- Seniority provisions; and,
- Job security.
Congratulations to our newest members at Canna Cabana – welcome to Your Union.
