Medical marijuana dispensary workers in Canada have joined a union in what some are calling a first for the country, borrowing a page from organized labor in the United States.
According to the Canadian Press, workers at Canna Clinic, in Toronto’s east end, have joined Unifor, the country’s major private-sector union. Canna Clinic has four more locations in Toronto plus clinics in Vancouver.
The Canadian Press reported that some 40 workers, including production, packaging and retail staff, are now unionized.
The next step is for the union to negotiate a contract with Canna Clinic,
