Unionized cafeteria workers in one western Pennsylvania school district have won the right to eat expired food for free -- at their own risk.
The Herald of Sharon, Pa., reports Monday that the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees filed a grievance against the Sharpsville Area School District last year after school officials "violated established past practice" by no longer allowing workers to eat the expired food for free.
The newspaper got a copy of a settlement approved by the school board last month.
Under the agreement, food items that are past their expiration date or reheated in a way that they can no longer be served to students may still be eaten for free by the cafeteria workers.
Workers must pay for unexpired food they eat.
