Argentine police, workers fight at Kraft plant

Argentine police, workers fight at Kraft plant

Argentine police have used force to remove laid-off workers occupying a Kraft Foods plant since last month.
Authorities used tear gas and rubber bullets Friday against union members throwing sticks and rocks.
The court-ordered evacuation could resolve a standoff that started when Kraft Foods Inc. laid off about 160 of the plant's several thousand workers.
The union demanded the jobs back and seized the plant. They also occupied a major freeway, demanding government help.
Argentina's labor ministry and company executives met Friday, reaching a deal to resume operations Monday morning and keep the plant's remaining jobs. Union members weren't present at the talks.
Kraft Foods Inc. is based in Northfield, Illinois.
