Union Representative Hugh Giordano


On Monday, January 10th, 2022, Union Representative Hugh Giordano was listed among NJ.com’s 22 People, Places, Trends To Watch in N.J. Cannabis in 2022, which listed those that will undoubtedly play pivotal roles in shaping New Jersey’s cannabis space in this new year.

From the article:

11. Hugh Giordano, the UFCW Local 152 representative has made it no secret he’s willing to tussle. Whether it’s fighting on budtender tipping, the formation of new unions at big and small cannabis businesses alike, expect Giordano to be a critical voice in one of America’s most union-heavy states when it comes to how the cannabis industry treats its workers.

Great job, Hugh. We are proud that your hard work was recognized by NJ.com and feel grateful to have such strong union representatives aggressively fighting for the working class!
