'Loud and clear message': Union workers overwhelmingly reject contract
By a 90 percent majority vote, union members on Tuesday rejected the amended contract proposals American Crystal Sugar Co. offered last month, according to union official John Riskey.
"Today our members sent a loud and clear message to American Crystal executives," Riskey said, reading a prepared statement to reporters outside the union's office in downtown Grand Forks. "We want to work, but we will not accept a contract that puts our jobs and the entire community at risk."
