On June 3rd, UFCW Local 99 welcomed 30 new members from Natural Rx.
Workers voted on their first contract. In their contract they gained wage increases, seniority rights, healthcare package, pension, paid holidays, vacation and personal days.
Workers represented are Patient Consultants, Garden Assistant, Budtenders, Edible Specialists, Security, Cashier, Compliance Specialists, Trimmers, Store Managers and Assistant Managers.
Workers wanted to join a union for workplace protections and guarantees. Also, owner Trevor Reed, wants to operate as a union operator because he was an Ironworker himself. He let his staff choose and they chose Union.
Shops are located in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and Los Lunas in New Mexico. It is the first shop and grow represented by Local 99.
Congratulations and welcome to the Union family.
