Cannabis Workers in Maryland Continue to Join Local 27

April 3, 2024

On March 22, workers at the Health for Life cannabis dispensary in Baltimore voted to join UFCW Local 27 by an overwhelming margin. The vote comes after 20 the workers, who are employed as cannabis budtenders and leads, filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board.

These workers joined our union family to secure fairness, respect, and dignity in their workplace, as well as better wages, improved benefits, and the opportunity for a better life.

“We welcome our sisters and brothers from this dispensary into the UFCW Local 27 family,” said UFCW Local 27 President Jason Chorpenning. “Dispensary workers have a very stressful job and they work very hard to make millions in profits for their employers. They deserve the basic human dignity that all workers deserve and we are thrilled to help them have a chance at a better life.”

In addition to the Health for Life cannabis dispensary unit in Baltimore, UFCW Local 27 recently organized workers at another Health for Life dispensary in White Marsh, Md. UFCW Local 27 also represents cannabis workers at the Zen Leaf dispensary in Towson, Md. and PharmaCann Verilife dispensary in Westminster, Md.
