UFCW California Cannabis Workers Vote Overwhelmingly to Ratify Historic Contract with Eaze, Largest Cannabis Delivery Company in the Nation

After reaching a historic tentative agreement Monday night, UFCW-represented cannabis delivery drivers and depot staff at 11 Eaze locations in California have overwhelmingly ratified their first statewide three-year contract. The employees are represented by UFCW locals 5, 135, 324, and 770, and their victory comes after months of difficult negotiations, including an authorization for an unprecedented statewide strike, ahead of 4/20.

The agreement represents a significant win for workers, with provisions including immediate wage increases of up to $2.50 an hour for retail and delivery workers, and up to $3.50 an hour for inventory and depot employees. The agreement includes a process to establish an equitable and transparent mileage reimbursement. The contract also guarantees health care benefits, work hours, appropriate advance notice for work scheduling, premium pay on holidays, and paid time off for part-time workers, among other wins.

These gains are a testament to the worker-led bargaining team’s determination, which has fought for justice and respect relentlessly since August 2023. This contract is effective 4/20/24 through 4/19/27.

UFCW Locals 5, 135, 324, and 770 proudly represent nearly 600 Eaze/Stachs workers, and the UFCW as a whole represents over 6,000 cannabis workers throughout California.
