The Union and Employer met in November to work on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement for Minnesota's only Union Medical Cannabis company. The people that grow, process, package, and care for the patients at the retail care center locations are all members of UFCW Local 1189.  The employer cancelled the scheduled December dates citing inablility to present a comprehensive economic offer and scheduling conflicts due to the holidays.  Dates are set for January 7 and January 10, 2020.  The Union is optimistic that an agreement can be reached.

President Jennifer Christensen stated that "While some progress on the proposals, there is much work to be done." 

The current contract expires 12/31/2019.
