Locked-out American Crystal Sugar union workers will hold a fifth vote on the company’s last contract offer on April 13, according to Gayln Olson, president of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Local 372G in Hillsboro.
A judge struck down New York City's pioneering ban on big sugary drinks Monday just hours before it was supposed to take effect, handing a defeat to health-minded Mayor Michael Bloomberg and creating uncertainty for restaurants that had already ordered smaller cups and changed their menus.
Locked-out union workers at American Crystal Sugar said “no” to the company’s contract offer a fourth time on Saturday. Their message is clear: They’d rather stay locked out than accept the contract. They’d rather extend a 16-month lockout than take a contract that, to most observers of the regional labor market, looks pretty good.
