Employees of Chicago-based MSO Green Thumb Industries (GTI) have formed a union in response to what they call unfair labor practices, “including unlawful intimidation, harassment and retaliation” at a facility in Rock Island, Ill.
GTI Employee Kyle Meyer:
“For months, my coworkers and I listened to complaining from managers, supervisors and coworkers about losing benefits, having promised raises unfulfilled and a general lack of organization, and that’s when we decided to form a union.”
“We ran a clean campaign and we did everything that we were supposed to. We had majority status and we asked for recognition from GTI on Oct. 10, but GTI refused to even get back to us, despite having multiple notices sent to them.”
- GTI did not respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.
- Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson (D) called for a long-awaited licensing round to be halted for fear it had been compromised to the disadvantage of equity applicants.????WeedWeek California has more.
