AMARILLO -- 10 Pantex guards are back at work after a long labor dispute.

In January, officials say 11 guards participated in a sick out to avoid working on a drill.

Pantex dismissed the guards.

Pantex and the Guards Union say they have reached an agreement.

The guards were on unpaid suspension for 14 weeks.

All but one guard is back at work.

That guard chose not to return.
