FARGO, N.D. (AP) – The National Labor Relations Board has rejected a complaint by American Crystal Sugar union workers that the company failed to negotiate in good faith.

About 1,300 union workers have been locked out of five sugar processing plants in Minnesota, North Dakota and Iowa in the company’s first labor impasse in 30 years.

A regional director for the labor board says the union failed to show that the company violated the National Labor Relations Act.

The board says the company made significant concessions after bargaining began.
