Cannabis workers vote to unionize at Potomac Holistics Dispensary

Workers at Potomac Holistics Medical Dispensary in Rockville, Md. last week voted to unionize with United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 400. "We are excited to join the growing movement of cannabis workers across the country who have unionized their workplaces," the workers [link removed] said in a statement. "Many thanks to all of our customers and community allies who showed support for us as we embarked on this journey. We know we can count on you as we move forward to the next step in this process: collectively negotiating our first union contract."


Proposed bill ordering feds to curb telework policies is `political misdirection,' union leader says

AFGE President Everett Kelley called the GOP's Stopping Home Office Work's Unproductive Problems (SHOW UP) Act "political misdirection" last week. "At a time when agencies across government are struggling to hire and retain a new generation of government employees," [link removed] said Kelley, "Congress should be focused on improving pay, benefits, and career development opportunities. Instead, we see message bills like the SHOW UP Act that denigrate the federal workforce and undermine recruitment and retention."


Labor Quote: Everett Kelley

"The truth is that government employees show up for work every day - whether they're working in an office, hospital, prison, military base, or from their homes. Anyone who suggests otherwise is deliberately misleading the American public."

President of AFGE, Kelley was responding to the GOP's Stopping Home Office Work's Unproductive Problems (SHOW UP) Act.
