American Crystal Lockout: Ending a fight in God's house
There were prayers, hymns, scripture and some tears Wednesday during a worship service at United Lutheran Church in Grand Forks aimed at reconciliation in the long-running labor dispute between American Crystal Sugar Co. and its 1,300 locked-out union workers.
It was led by Lutheran bishops from the region, but all were welcome. About 120 attended, including sugar beet growers, union members and the top brass of American Crystal, kneeling together, in some cases, for prayer.
