Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - A tentative labor agreement has been reached in a dispute between union workers and management at Duluth Steel Fabricators.

Tuesday was the second day of their strike with family insurance coverage a main sticking point.

Workers said they gave up their insurance during the recession to help the company with the promise it would be returned when the economy turned around.

Shop Stewart Lee Popovich would not comment on the specifics of the agreement, but did say workers will be back on the job Wednesday.

A vote on the agreement is expected to be taken Wednesday morning.
