Former Ann Arbor dispensary employees sue, claiming wrongful termination
Three former employees at Om of Medicine have filed wrongful termination claims as their colleagues still working at the dispensary attempt to unionize. Conine, Om’s community outreach coordinator, said that staff were initially told that 4Front would preserve Om’s mission in serving the community, but at some point things began to change. In response, Om’s employees began the effort to unionize with the United Food Workers' cannabis division. The shop abruptly closed for the rest of the day, resulting in a picket by the three women and some current Om employees outside its Main St. location. When A4 reached out to Om’s local management for comment, they said they cannot comment publicly on specific employment and HR matters while legal proceedings are ongoing.
