Moosehead Settles 5 Week Lockout

Moosehead Breweries Ltd. says it has reached a memorandum of agreement with its unionized employees, ending a five-week work stoppage.
Leaders of the New Brunswick Union of Public Employees said Saturday they will unanimously endorse the agreement.

The ratification vote will be held Wednesday.

The company says pickets have been removed from the brewery and work will resume Sunday, but no details of the deal were provided.

Workers were locked out last week when talks to sign a new collective agreement broke down.
