Locked-out Crystal workers claim cars bumped them

Moorhead, Minn. (AP) — No charges are expected after locked-out

American Crystal Sugar workers say vehicles bumped into them on a

Moorhead picket line.

Moorhead Police Lt. Tory Jacobson tells KFGO-AM that in two

separate incidents Friday, locked-out workers claim they were

intentionally bumped by vehicles crossing the picket line.

Up to 25 pickets were walking near a gate when the incidents

happened.

Jacobson says police have been speaking with locked-out workers

and Crystal officials to ensure everyone’s safety.

Union workers at Crystal have been locked out since Aug. 1.
