No resolution to American Crystal lockoutAmerican Crystal Sugar Co. and its locked-out factory workers have again failed to resolve their differences.
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — American Crystal Sugar Co. and its locked-out factory workers have again failed to resolve their differences.
Union President John Riskey tells KFGO radio that representatives of the two sides sat down with a federal mediator for a daylong negotiating session Monday but there was no resolution.
Crystal vice president Brian Ingulsrud says in a statement that the company's final offer remains on the table.
Crystal's 1,300 union-represented employees have been locked out of the company's sugar beet processing factors in North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa since Aug. 1, after union workers rejected a company contract offer. The workers turned down a revised offer in November.
