Before we get to the story here are some strikers who staryed on the picket line a little longer!
MJ Biz report
Workers at a Curaleaf Holdings marijuana store in central Phoenix went on a daylong strike Friday to protest a wrongful termination and operational policies, organizers told MJBizDaily.
In conjunction with the strike, the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 99 held a rally and news conference outside the store, urging the New York-based marijuana multistate operator to reinstate a fired worker and advance union contract negotiations.
Employees at Curaleaf Midtown voted in June 2022 to unionize but have yet to finalize a contract, according to a news release.
The National Labor Relations Board, an independent federal agency that protects the rights of private-sector employees to collectively bargain, has issued a complaint alleging that Curaleaf Midtown terminated a worker for her union activity and changed policies without negotiating with the union.
“While we believe that a direct relationship with our team members is the best route for us to work together, we respect the voices of our team members and will negotiate with union leaders in good faith,” Curaleaf said in a statement sent to MJBizDaily.
