Workers at Green Thumb Industries in Reno, Nevada last week voted to join the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 711.
In a statement, Green Thumb worker Derrick Miles said he and his colleagues “look forward to bargaining a fair contract.”
Last year, about 60 cannabis workers at the Green Thumb-owned RISE dispensary in Henderson voted to join the UFCW Local 711. In March, a complaint was filed with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) accusing Green Thumb of violations related to labor law concerning unionization, including, coercive rules, discipline, refusal to bargain or bargaining in bad faith, and repudiation or modification of contract. A prior complaint filed with NLRB accused Green Thumb of discharging employees and other discipline associated with their unionization efforts.
