American Crystal Sugar contract rejected (for the 4th time)

>>>
Locked-out American Crystal Sugar workers Saturday narrowly rejected a contract offer from the Minnesota company for the fourth time, union officials said.

Fifty-five percent of the Bakery, Confectionery and Tobacco Workers Local 167G members who voted turned down the offer, which was largely the same one the company had offered previously, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

1. Another Christmas with me using cane sugar instead of beet.

Fuck Crystal Sugar. I find it bizarre that they can't find one little thing to budge on. Their operating costs are way up and their profits are down, and they still can't make a change to the contract. So sad.

3. I have 2 cash register receipts for cane sugar I have bought since the lock out


If I was a stockholder, I'd be pissed about changing buying habits that lead to a long time loss in business!

K&R!

4. Every time I buy a bag of C&H, I write a letter to Crystal Sugar.

Crystal Sugar was the ONLY sugar I bought, living in Minnesota all these years. Until the lockout.
