San Bernardino Pot Shop Unionizes in Regional First

Authentic 909 in San Bernardino, California has become the first unionized cannabis dispensary in the Inland Empire. Employees voted to ratify a labor agreement with UFCW Local 1167 on Saturday.

As CalMarijuanaPolicy reported Monday, employees at San Francisco marijuana dispensary Stiiizy-Mission recently voted in favor of a contract negotiated by UFCW as well. 

“Workers in this sector across California and the country are joining the UFCW because our focus is on creating good-paying union jobs that provide people with a living wage, excellent health and retirement benefits and the best job protections,” said UFCW Local 1167 President Joe Duffle (Business Wire).

Authentic 909 has around 30 employees.
