FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Employees at a SuperValu grocery warehouse in north Fargo are back at work Monday after a brief strike.

The business agent for the Teamsters union local says union members walked off the job at about 6 a.m. Monday. They had voted earlier to reject the company's contract offer.

About 85 employees went back to work after the disagreements were resolved.

A SuperValu spokesman says the contract provides a 50-cent-per-hour raise over two years, and health and pension benefits. He says most of the warehouse workers are paid more than $20 an hour.

Teamster business agent Donny Walz says the pay raise will be given sooner, and workers will get a $500 bonus.

The SuperValu distribution center serves Hornbacher's grocery stores and other independent stores in North Dakota and Minnesota.
