GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — JBS USA and the United Food Commercial Workers Local 7 union have reached a tentative five-year contract agreement for the 3,000 workers at the beef plant in Greeley.

The Greeley Tribune reports the contract announced Friday calls for wage increases and affordable health care over the life of the contract. A ratification vote is scheduled Tuesday.

JBS and the union had been negotiating for 11 months. Union officials hailed the agreement, which also includes paid bereavement leave, seniority rights and other guarantees in case the plant closes or shifts are eliminated, as bringing “justice” to the workers and their families.

In a statement emailed to the newspaper, JBS USA calls the agreement “great news” for the entire Greeley community.
