FARGO, N.D. (AP) — American Crystal Sugar Co. and its union workers are heading back to negotiations.

Talks between the company and the union representing about 1,300 workers who have been locked out since Aug. 1 were to resume Monday. A federal mediation service in Minneapolis didn’t disclose the place and time.

American Crystal and the workers at five sugar beet processing plants in North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa are locked in a contract dispute. The factories have been running with replacement workers.
