United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 360 is pleased to announce the decision by workers at Harmony Foundation, and its Harmony Dispensary in Secaucus, NJ., to unionize as members of UFCW. Harmony employees can now add their names to the quickly growing ranks of UFCW Local 360 from across New Jersey’s young marijuana economy. Recently, Harmony announced its intention to expand into the adult use marijuana market, and to open locations in Hoboken, Jersey City – as well as a new cultivation site in Lafayette.
“It’s great news for these workers, and their families. They carefully considered, and then selected, the career-supporting benefits that come with joining Local 360,” said Hugh Giordano, UFCW Local 360’s director of organizing. “From making sure that sick and suffering patients get the help they need, to educating them on how to properly experience the benefits of medical marijuana and supporting the expansion of this industry, they’ve shown their commitment to the promise of the cannabis economy.”
