UFCW Named On NJ.com’s “21 People and Places To Watch in Cannabis”

Cannabis plant


UFCW was named on NJ.com’s “21 people and places to watch in the N.J. cannabis space in 2021,” an alphabetical list of 21 influential people and places expected to shape the cannabis market in New Jersey this year.

From the article:

“The United Food and Commercial Workers already represents some cannabis employees in New Jersey, and represents thousands nationally. Expect the union’s relevance and interest to grow in New Jersey because the state expects operators to have “peace agreements” with unions, which say the company will agree not to oppose union activity.

See the full list on NJ. com here. We certainly plan to continue to fight on behalf of cannabis industry workers up and down the Garden State!


On a national level, the United Food and Commercial Workers represent workers in both medical and recreational cannabis-related industries. UFCW Local 152 is committed to standing with cannabis workers in our area to not only create good jobs, but to also represent them so that their employers pay good wages, good benefits, and fair treatment in a safe work environment. Discover more about the Cannabis Campaign in our area and our efforts to support workers in the industry.
