The paper manufacturing company and International Association of Machinists Local 621 issued a joint one-sentence statement on Friday saying that they have reached a new three-year agreement.  No other details were released.

About 200 workers had gone on strike this past Sunday, saying that the company had refused to negotiate with them.  The company had said Monday that its goal was to ensure that the workers remain among the highest-paid production workers in the area.
