More Cannabis Workers in Nevada Join Local 711

January 4, 2024

On Dec. 8, workers at the Ayr Wellness cannabis dispensary in Henderson, Nev., voted to join UFCW Local 711 for a voice in the workplace.

With this organizing win, UFCW Local 711 now represents three Ayr Wellness dispensaries in Nevada. The workers at the Henderson Ayr Wellness dispensary are part of a wave of cannabis workers seeking union representation with the UFCW in Nevada over the past few months. Last October, cannabis workers at Green Thumb Industries in Carson City and Ayr Wellness in Las Vegas voted to join UFCW Local 711.

“I am so glad to be joining our fellow union stores by becoming the third Ayr Wellness location in Nevada to unionize,” said Ayr Wellness employee Taylor Vivian, who was part of the organizing process. “As this industry develops across more and more states around the country, I am happy to join the movement of workers that demonstrates just how powerful cannabis workers can be when we stand together and fight for a seat at the table.”

“A dispensary job can, and should be, a career-sustaining role where workers feel respected and our hard work is rewarded,” Vivian added. “We are excited to finally be able to negotiate a contract that truly reflects the value we put into this store every day to make Ayr the successful dispensary that it is.”
