FARGO, N.D. —

More than 400 American Crystal Sugar Co. workers who have been locked out of their jobs for nearly two years are back to work.

The Forum reports (http://bit.ly/18qYsoz) a little more than a month after the union ratified a new contract, some 400 workers returned to their jobs Tuesday.

About 1,300 sugar workers had been locked out of their jobs in North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa since August 2011 after the union rejected a company contract offer.

Vice President Brian Ingulsrud says the company is glad to have its employees back. He says the union workers are evenly spread throughout the company's factories.

The company has said about 650 union employees had resigned or retired.

A message left with the union wasn't immediately returned.
