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.
Locked-out American Crystal Sugar workers will vote again Saturday on a contract they have rejected four times before. After 96 percent of union members rejected the contract in 2011, the union members have voted down the contract in smaller numbers in each vote.
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.
Locked-out American Crystal Sugar workers have another chance to say yes or no to a contract Saturday but they are again facing a choice they rejected more than a year ago. A yes vote means a contract that is mostly unchanged from what they have already rejected and that could lessen their power as a union. A no vote means a continuation of the 16-month lockout and its financial hardships.
The locked-out workers of American Crystal Sugar will vote on the company’s contract offer Dec. 1, said a union official. The company earlier announced on its website that union members had met with management Nov. 15 and the company expected a contract vote. Riskey confirmed the statement Friday.
