ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Unionized workers at the Fairbanks Scales plant in the Vermont town of St. Johnsbury are back on the job after a weeklong strike.

On Tuesday, workers from the United Electrical 234 ratified a three-year contract which includes wage increases and improvements in health insurance coverage.

Union representative Chad McGinnis says the company met most of the union’s key goals.

Sixty-seven workers went on strike Nov. 1.

Fairbanks spokeswoman Ingrid Adel said the company is pleased an agreement has been reached and officials look forward to returning to business as usual.
