Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Turns to Labor Attorneys for Insight on Cannabis Labor Peace Agreements

They explain, “given that the state requirements impose obligations where the National Labor Relations Act does not, there is a strong argument that these laws are entirely or largely pre-empted by the NLRA.”
