ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton is traveling to Moorhead Saturday to meet with American Crystal Sugar Co. executives, and to attend a meeting organized by union workers who’ve been locked out of jobs there since Aug. 1 on a contract dispute.

Dayton’s spokeswoman says Friday that the governor will meet with officials at company headquarters at their invitation. Spokeswoman Katharine Tinucci says the Democratic governor will reiterate comments he made a week ago urging executives and locked-out factory workers to return to the bargaining table.

Dayton said the lockout has devastated families, communities and the Red River Valley economy.

On Saturday afternoon, Dayton is attending a public forum at Minnesota State University-Moorhead put on by locked-out workers. Tinucci says Dayton’s main goal is to hear their concerns.
