Major League Baseball uniforms will continue to be made in the Lehigh Valley. VF Majestic of Easton has reached a new three-year agreement with its union textile workers.

Union representatives said there had been disputes over health benefits and wages that could have led to a strike just before Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in July.

According to a statement from the Service Employees International Union, which represents the company's workers, the agreement maintains the workers' existing level of health insurance benefits without significant increases in worker premiums, as well as providing for fair pay raises.

During the negotiations, the workers said they received the support of the Major League Baseball Players Association.
