The UFCW is one of the largest private sector Unions in the whole United States (“Look for the Union . . . Edible,” March 20). We are organizing in all states where cannabis is [legalized]. We must educate the cannabis owners and investors that workers do have rights to organize and demand better working conditions, to respect workers rights to say or complain without the threat of being discharged or terminated for organizing. . . . This cannabis industry has been asked to do what other employer’s have been doing in the state of California—respect workers rights to join a union of free choice. UFCW local 5 has contracts with dispensaries. We had the first members in Oakland and Berkeley in 2012. We are now also looking for employers who wish to sign a labor peace agreement with UFCW Local 5.

Rediscovering San Anselmo
Really enjoyed this article (“San Anselmo’s Fire,” March 6). San Anselmo is in my own backyard but it opened my eyes further. I think I’ll pop in to Routes Gallery, I drive by every day and have never been in! Thank you for a fun informative article with delicious food descriptions.
