Agreement reached ending a six-month strike at Domino Sugar Factory in Yonkers

A contract agreement between management and union workers at the Domino Sugar Factory in Yonkers was recently reached, ending a six-month strike.

After months of talks and stalemates, members of Local 1814 of the International Longshoreman?s Union voted 2-to-1 to accept a deal. Officials say the contract is the same deal offered to the union last year. Workers will get a $1,000 payment this year, a 2 percent raise next year and another 2 percent raise in 2007.

Union leaders say the workers are happy with the raises, but not happy they will have to give up some overtime. However, they say this deal was the best they could get. The management calls the contract fair for both workers and the company.
