ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) - Roseburg Forest Products and its union workers have reached a deal on a new contract.

The News-Review reports (https://is.gd/kna3SN ) the previous contract expired in June, and work had been continuing under that agreement.

Union workers previously took issue with mandatory overtime shifts and frozen pensions in previous contracts. They rallied at company headquarters in Springfield at least twice earlier this year.

Specifics of the new contract have not been released. It affects nearly 2,000 employees, mostly in Douglas and Coos counties.
