Minnesota senators removed extended unemployment benefits for workers locked out by employers in labor disputes during a Friday bill debate. The provision was a Democratic response to a 20-month lockout by American Crystal Sugar Co., as well as a pair of Twin Cities orchestra labor disputes.
A union leader representing locked-out American Crystal Sugar workers said 420 of them are eligible for unemployment benefits, made possible by a North Dakota Supreme Court decision Tuesday, and he is asking the state tell them soon when payments will come.
A handful of locked-out American Crystal employees addressed the issue with lawmakers during the first hearing of Senate Bill 2224, sponsored by Sen. Murphy, which would clarify current law and extend unemployment insurance benefits to an individual that has been locked out and prevented from working.
