Union: New Jersey Dispensary Engaging in Unfair Labor Practices

A New Jersey union has filed a grievance alleging unfair labor practices against a dispensary in the state, saying the business won’t allow its workers to unionize.

The United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) Local 152 claims that Compassionate Care Foundation, which owns a dispensary in Egg Harbor Township that employs 11 workers who want representation, has given employees new job titles that don’t allow them to join a union.

The organization also says that executives cut hours for those seeking to unionize.

The complaint was filed with the National Labor Relations Board, which will hold a hearing on Feb. 4 to address the union’s concerns, according to Philly.com.

Almost a year ago, a Maine dispensary settled on terms to address charges filed by the UFCW alleging it’d violated fair labor laws.
