On September 25, UFCW Local 400 Smithfield workers ratified their first four-year collective bargaining agreement. The contract covers 57 workers at the Smithfield-owned Farmland Foods distribution center located in Newport News, Va. The agreement raises wages, protects health and welfare benefits, and adds paid personal days. Workers at the plant voted to join UFCW Local 400 this past July in order to address key workplace issues.
