The National Labor Relations Board’s regional office in Minneapolis has dismissed four complaints against American Crystal Sugar Co. that claimed the nation’s largest sugar beet processor engaged in unfair labor practices.

Minneapolis-based regional directors of the National Labor Relations Board wrote in the two decisions to dismiss the cases that there was insufficient evidence to prove that the company failed to bargain in good faith before locking out its union-represented workers on Aug. 1. Regional Director Marlin Osthus also wrote in his Sept. 9 decision that company training of non-bargaining unit workers and replacement workers before the lockout began and contacting employees to state its position on negotiations before a union vote did not violate the National Labor Relations Act.
