JBS Says It’s in Labor Talks Over New Contract at Colorado Plant

JBS SA (JBSS3), the world’s largest beef producer, said it’s in talks with a union to establish a new labor contract at its Greeley plant in Colorado.

JBS agreed to a one-month extension to the previous contract earlier in October, the Sao Paulo-based company said today in an e-mail. That contract can be extended again on a day-by-day basis while the negotiations with the United Food & Commercial Workers Union continue, JBS said.
