Employees at the Sunnyside marijuana store in Schaumburg, Illinois, voted to join Teamsters Local 777, with 97% of the workers in favor.
Sunnyside is owned and operated by Cresco Labs, a multistate operator based in Chicago.
“We deserve to have a voice,” Kelly Wargo, a wellness adviser at the store, said in a news release issued by the union.
“It’s time to re-establish our human rights in the workplace.”
“This is the third cannabis election we have won in the town of Schaumburg alone,” Local 777 President Jim Glimco said in a statement.
“We have momentum on our side in this industry.”
