On May 25, Crème of the Crop workers in Tacoma, Washington, voted to ratify their first union contract. Crème of the Crop is a women-owned and operated cannabis retail shop, and 100 percent of the workers, who are members of UFCW Local 367, voted to ratify the contract.
The two-year contract raises wages for budtenders and shift managers, and includes health insurance, an employer paid defined benefit pension plan, seven paid holidays, paid vacation and sick leave, and a seniority and grievance procedure.
“Local 367 stands together with the workers of Crème of the Crop,” said UFCW Local 367 President Denise Jagielo. “The path to a better life is through a stronger working class, and we are proud to welcome them to our family.”
