Locked out Crystal Sugar workers were denied access to the company's annual shareholders meeting today as they tried to deliver a petition they say had 100,000 signatures from their supporters. CEO David Berg says the company didn't want a union petition to disrupt shareholder's meetings. Crystal Sugar saw profits fall nearly one third from last year's record high. The company said it was still a good year despite the ongoing lockout. About 1,300 workers have been locked out of their jobs for 16 months. Becky Parker has more.
