A Cannabis Union ie. United Food & Commercial Workers
The United Food union wishes for its “workers to achieve some of the standards and benefits that usually only a collective bargaining agreement can produce.”

National Cannabis Union
Along with Connecticut, there are other states that are supporting cannabis employees.”The labor peace agreement means employers would give the union access to come in and talk to the employees about organizing.” “In California and Washington, … the workers are represented by this very same union.” A designated cannabis union can help new businesses beginning in Connecticut and other states.
