Labor unions see an chance to organize 1 of the quickest-increasing industries.
Weed workers across the nation are unionizing, and California just created it a lot easier for them.
On Friday, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law a requirement that all cannabis retailers enter into so-named “labor peace agreements” as quickly as they have 20 or far more personnel.
California is now 1 of two states — New York is the other — that calls for licensed weed shops to make a deal with a formal labor union in which managers guarantee not to quit workers from joining a union. And in exchange, organizers will not encourage labor strikes against the enterprise.
Labor unions have been pushing for these agreements in current years, as far more and far more states decriminalize marijuana. They say they want to make positive the $six billion sector does not exploit workers, who are generally paid under the minimum wage or offered marijuana rather of wages.
