MONTPELIER, Vt. — The Latest on a march to a Ben & Jerry's plant by farm workers and activists (all times local):

5 p.m.

Scores of dairy farm workers and activists have completed their march from the Vermont capital of Montpelier to a Ben & Jerry's factory protesting what they say are slow negotiations to reach a deal on the so-called "Milk with Dignity" program.

The march that began Saturday morning at the Montpelier Statehouse ended mid-afternoon at the ice cream plant in Waterbury.

Proponents say the program would ensure fair pay and living conditions on farms that provide milk to Ben & Jerry's for its popular ice cream.

Organizer Will Lambek says that when marchers arrived at the plant they presented a letter to Ben & Jerry's CEO Jostein Solheim.

Ben & Jerry's spokesman Sean Greenwood says the company is committed to reaching a deal with workers.
