MOORHEAD – Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton today offered to act as a catalyst to reopen talks between American Crystal Sugar Co. and its approximately 1,300 locked-out workers.

“I will come to start it and stay as long as it needs to get it done,” Dayton said to loud applause at a gathering of locked-out workers at Minnesota State University Moorhead this afternoon.

Dayton said he made the same offer to company representatives in a meeting with them earlier today and while he did not get an immediate answer from the company, Dayton said he hopes negotiations could resume this coming week or the next.
