Wells' Dairy strikes deal with employees

Thursday, March 6, 2008

Wells' Dairy and an employee bargaining committee have reached a tentative deal to cut workers' pay and perks by $5 million this year.

Company spokesman Dave Smetter says details will be presented to more than 1,500 workers at informational meetings this week. The workers will then decide whether to ratify the new deal.

Last week, hourly workers, by a 14-vote margin, agreed to reopen the final year of the current contract with the Le Mars-based company.
