Marijuana dispensary workers continue union effort – Philly.com

The attorney for the employees of South Jersey’s only medical marijuana dispensary said Monday that he would file a new petition with the National Labor Relations Board alleging that their attempt to join a union was blocked by their employer.
Mark E. Belland said he recently withdrew the complaint he filed this year on behalf of workers at the Compassionate Care Foundation facility in Egg Harbor Township because the rules for organizing a union changed this month.
“We plan to refile under the new rules, which set up a more streamlined and quicker process for employees who want to organize,” Belland said. The new rules also require the employer “to identify all the issues that he intends to contest” if he opposes the bid to unionize, the lawyer said.
An NLRB spokesperson confirmed the rule changes, which took effect last Tuesday.
