Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and labor groups say they have agreements with the Vikings that they hope will increase city support for a new stadium on the current Metrodome site.
The agreements call for union labor to be used on any stadium, with unions committing to no work stoppages.
The Vikings separately have signed a letter of intent to OK unionized concession workers at the new stadium.
Still under discussion is a workforce agreement that would set goals for hiring women and minority workers and subcontractors. The agreement would also aim to hire Minneapolis residents from zip codes with high rates of poverty.
