American Crystal Sugar Letter Angers Union Leader 13 Jul 12

(Moorhead, MN)  –  A letter from American Crystal Sugar to its locked-out workers is causing quite a stir.  The letter invites the employees back to work under terms of the company’s final offer, adding that the company is getting “many telephone calls from locked-out employees,” inquiring about available jobs.  Union President John Riskey says such direct communication may be a violation of the law.  Riskey says the letter, signed by Vice-President Brian Ingulsrud, proves the company is desperate for experienced employees.  American Crystal Spokesman Jeff Schweitzer says the letter speaks for itself.
