Thirty cannabis production workers in Monson, Massachusetts earlier this year voted to join a union that has a web site at www.ufcw1459.com. Monson is 10 miles from downtown Springfield. On December 6, union president Jeff Jones told the Valley Post that negotiations for the first union contract for the workers are going well. The company is Holistic Industries.

Last month, 65 residential advisers at Mount Holyoke college voted unanimously to join Jones's union. Jones said negotiations are going well on that contract too.
