Heaven Hill says it has reached a tentative contract agreement with the union. Union workers must vote on it this weekend — Saturday, Oct. 23. About 420 members of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Local 23D, have been on strike for more than five weeks. UFCW Local 23D has reached a fully recommended tentative agreement with Heaven Hill on a five-year contract. "We're strong, we're people who have always held together through the rain and everything," said Cliff Thomas, international representative, UFCW. Heaven Hill workers will make their voices heard tomorrow when they vote on this tentative agreement. The company wants to replace longtime employees with non-union workers. The company says it would start hiring permanent replacement workers for bottling and warehouse operations soon. With a tentative agreement now on the table, it'll be up to workers to approve it. It's the fourth week of strikes against the company.
