Workers at the Syro Steel fabrication plant have ratified a contract that puts an end to a six-day strike.

About 90 percent of the more than 100 workers on Friday voted to accept the new contract, which provides for a raise that will total 85 cents over three years, as well as 7 percent of a profit-sharing plan, said Rick Leonard of the United Steelworkers of America Local 1735.He said work would resume with the graveyard shift late Saturday.

The workers had been picketing the plant since last Sunday to protest minor raises that amounted to only a nickle or a dime at a time over the past six years, Leonard said.

Syro officials were not immediately available for comment.
