DANVILLE -- Workers at an area plant accepted a new contract, but not everyone's happy about it. The United Food and Commercial Works Union avoided a strike with Viscofan.

UFCW workers have been promised a raise, better schedules and safety improvements. It includes being tested for dangerous gas exposure and having an air quality monitor.

But some workers feel the new deal isn't good enough. They say they couldn't negotiate those issues if they were on strike. The contract with Viscofan is for three years.

DANVILLE -- Workers at an area plant have agreed to a contract. Earlier this month, more than 200 Viscofan workers threatened to walk out. They said pay, safety and schedules were problems.

But, union leaders say the new contract fixes that. The plant will get money for new protective equipment. It's also making changes to safety procedures.
