Cannabis Workers in Nevada Continue to Join Local 711

June 17, 2024

Cannapunch cannabis workers in Las Vegas recently voted to join the UFCW Local 711 for a better life.

This 32-person unit is the first cannabis processor in the state of Nevada to unionize with UFCW Local 711. These workers joined our union family because they wanted a voice in the workplace and the better wages and benefits that a union contract provides.

The workers at Cannapunch are part of a wave of cannabis workers seeking union representation with the UFCW in Nevada. Cannabis workers at Ayr Wellness dispensaries in Henderson and Las VegasMedMen dispensary in Las Vegas, and Green Thumb Industries in Carson City joined UFCW Local 711 in 2023.

“I’m thrilled to join the other three Ayr Wellness locations in Nevada and cannabis workers across the country in this growing labor movement,” said Cannapunch Cannabis worker David Rodriguez Prieto. “As the industry expands nationwide, I’m proud to stand with my colleagues, building our power to fight for just compensation and a voice on the job.

“A cannabis processing job should provide a stable career where workers feel valued and their efforts appreciated,” Prieto added. “We look forward to discussing a contract that genuinely mirrors our daily contributions that make Cannapunch the successful dispensary it is.”
