SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (KTIV) -

Three-hundred union workers at Interbake Foods, in North Sioux City, South Dakota have avoided a strike by approving the company's latest contract offer.

The crucial vote came Friday morning, at the Eagles Club, in South Sioux City, Nebraska. A spokesperson for Bakers Local 433 couldn't give us specific details about the deal. But she said Interbake made "improvements" in their latest offer to the group.

"We went back to the table. The company made some improvements on what they were offering. It was enough movement we felt the membership needed to know. So we brought it back to them and they accepted," said Union Spokesperson Paula Steig.

The workers at Interbake have been working under an extension of a six-year contract that expired in April.
