Employees at a Trulieve dispensary in Pittsburgh have joined other cannabis workers in voting to unionize. UFCW Local 1776 President Wendell Young IV announced on Friday that the workers at the Trulieve North Shore medical cannabis dispensary will be now represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union Local 1776.

“I want to congratulate these workers for their hard work and commitment throughout this process,” says Young. “We look forward to securing a contract that delivers fair wages, strong benefits and a safe workplace.”

Young noted that the Local has so far organized three cannabis dispensaries in the Keystone State.

“We are the union for cannabis workers,” Young says. “We worked hard to help secure legislation that opened the state to medical cannabis, and we will continue working for our members and all cannabis workers across Pennsylvania.”

UFCW 1776, based outside Philadelphia in Plymouth Meeting, PA, now represents approximately 600  cannabis workers at the bargaining table across the state.

Trulieve is a vertically-integrated medical cannabis company headquartered in Florida. It operates 162 dispensaries, which includes 113 dispensaries in Florida, 19 affiliated dispensaries in Pennsylvania and 30 more dispensaries in five other states.
