Unionization Efforts Leave Cannabis Growers Behind, But Change Could Be Coming

Cannabis Wire

Keahn Morris comments on whether the NLRB will allow for cannabis cultivators to be represented by unions saying, "We’re likely to see a shift in the direction that the NLRB’s Division of Advice takes on these types of cases." Morris is of the opinion that Jennifer Abrusso, who was recently nominated for NLRB General Counsel "will be more favorable to unions, given her history at the CWA and NLRB" and that "it’s likely the NLRB will make a binding decision on cannabis growers in the coming years." Morris also commented that "union representation could continue to increase because of labor peace agreement requirements for the cannabis industry, under which businesses agree to allow unions to organize their shops without interference."
