MOORHEAD, Minn. -- The reality they will soon return to work at American Crystal Sugar is generating a mix of emotions among workers locked out of their jobs for nearly two years. Becki Jacobson, a union worker at the Moorhead Crystal plant for more than 30 years, is still unhappy with some aspects of the contract the union approved April 13, but says, “I’m ready to get back to work.” She knows it will be difficult working side by side with replacement employees and union workers who went back to the job without a contract.
