A California chapter of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union has begun distributing a flyer that blasts cannabis delivery company Eaze over what it says is a lack of good faith at the negotiating table.
The flyer, which began circulating after talks between the company’s leadership and the UFCW Local 5 hit a wall in late August, is designed to bring more attention to the dispute, said Jim Araby, strategic campaigns director for the local.
“The new owners of Eaze, outside billionaires from Colorado, think that you will continue to work for peanuts,” the flyer blares.
The UFCW’s Araby said that Eaze has been essentially taken over by Leder and her family, including her husband Andrew Levine, who own Colorado-based Green Dragon.
When Eaze purchased Green Dragon in 2021, Eaze reported it had more than $190 million in transaction value over the previous 12 months, with average monthly revenue increasing 75% between 2019 and 2020.
Messages seeking comment from Eaze and Green Dragon were not immediately returned Friday.
In the months leading up to the flyer, negotiations broke down after Eaze employees at a San Francisco delivery hub, which does business as HomeTown Heart, began expressing a desire for a contract similar to one brokered by the UFCW
