      Lee Co. Board of Supervisors urge on negotiating

      The Lee County Board of Supervisors has weighed in on the Roquette lockout.

      According to the Daily Gate City, board members passed a resolution encouraging Roquette America and Local 48G to negotiate a resolution that would be a "mutually beneficial" settlement for both.

      They say they're not taking sides, but wants negotiations to continue.

      Paperwork filed notes the lockout has caused hardship for the county, Tri-State Area and even the entire state.

      The lockout began at the end of September when union members voted down what the company called its best and final contract offer.
