Jan 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Workers at the Tyson Foods Inc pork processing plant in Logansport IN have ratified a new 4½-year labor agreement that provides improvements in wages and benefits, company officials reported today. This is the ninth labor contract successfully negotiated by Tyson with the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union over the past 18 months.
The previous five-year labor contract was scheduled to expire October 4, but was extended indefinitely while talks continued between the company and UFCW Local 700.
The new labor contract affects 1,700 workers at the Logansport complex.
