RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - The Sioux Falls chapter of the United Food and Commercial Workers had negotiated with Virginia-based Smithfield Foods for two days after union members rejected a previous contract proposal and authorized a strike.

Union leaders say its members will vote on the proposed contract next week.

The UFCW says the company dropped plans to take away a 15-minute break and “the parties have reached an agreement on wages.”
