US labor agency: Marijuana trimmers, grow-room employees can’t unionize

Marijuana cultivators, trimmers, sorters and packagers can’t form unions because they qualify as agricultural laborers, according to a watershed new ruling from U.S. labor regulators.

The decision, 04_CA_260089_10_21_20_.pdf,, was released last week by the National Labor Relations Board and counters previous decisions by the labor board that marijuana growers are employees and not agricultural workers.
