Employers should, for example, pay attention to a proposed language that could be dragged into companies or businesses that would otherwise not be covered. The requirement applies only to licensed businesses. Therefore, agreements that apply to unleased companies or entities that hold a stake in the licensed business may be excessive. CalCannabis and the CDPH agency for the safety of the cannabis produced have also recently proposed to re-increase their rules, with some changes to the provisions relating to labour peace agreements. However, these specific changes would not be essential. Morgan Fox, a spokesman for the National Cannabis Industry Association, said the group`s position was that all parties should enter into employment contracts by mutual agreement and that business should be opened, meaning employees do not need to join a union if they don`t want to. Although the law does not come into force until January 1, 2020, it is now time for licensed cannabis companies and for those who wish to apply for licenses to discuss with their lawyers their personnel plans, how they comply (and certify) compliance with regulations, how they prepare for union efforts to organize their workers and how they can negotiate and document an “agreement” peace over work.” That`s a lot to do in a relatively short period of time. It will require advice from lawyers who are familiar with the cannabis industry, licensing and labour and labour law. The unions did not support this bill without expecting them to have something important to gain. It`s high time to get ready. The term “labour peace agreement” describes a neutrality agreement between employers and trade unions, in which both sides agree to abandon something in exchange for “peace”. Unions waive their right to strike, strike or other behaviour that affects the business; Employers waive their right to imprison organizing employees, conduct anti-union campaigns or make negative statements about workers about the union. California rule requires that any cannabis license applicant with at least 20 employees or any candidate who plans to hire at least 20 people meets the terms of a labor peace agreement.
However, the threshold could fall, especially in the municipalities most favorable to california unions. Los Angeles, for example, has already proposed reducing that number to ten. It is important that the rule applies only to licensed companies, not producers. Local governments are under constant pressure from trade unions to require employers to accept “peace at work” agreements as a condition for licensing, zoning, waivers, etc.
