Start marathon negotiations now

By Richard Radde


A few weeks ago the CEO of American Crystal Sugar, David Berg, labeled a recent labor contract proposal “a cancerous tumor.” I think that statements like this are terribly destructive and can have a long shelf life. I urge Berg to express himself in a more helpful way.

I hope Berg, the local union and Gov. Mark Dayton will start marathon negotiations and continue until a final contract is agreed upon.

Radde is a disabled veteran and retired Lutheran pastor.
