Ontario's Union for fairness, equality and respect at work.

Workers at Sessions Cannabis, Red Hill location in Hamilton, recently voted to join UFCW 1006A.

“UFCW 1006A is proud to be the best union in Ontario for cannabis workers,” said President Wayne Hanley. “With the protection and security of UFCW 1006A representation, cannabis workers are transforming their lives and workplaces for the better. We are proud to welcome our newest members from Sessions Cannabis in Hamilton.”

The new bargaining unit consists of 10 members working as budtenders and key leads.

Key issues include benefits, health and safety concerns, staffing, scheduling, workload and increased responsibilities with no additional pay.

“UFCW 1006A is a powerful force for fairness for workers in the cannabis industry,” said Lesley Prince, Organizing Director for UFCW 1006A. “This is a precarious and challenging industry for workers, who are increasingly seeking unionization as a pathway to achieving fairness in the workplace.”
