Dept. Of Labor Reaches Agreement In State Fair Stage Collapse Case

September 10, 2013 Updated Sep 10, 2013 at 11:05 AM EST

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (21Alive) -- The Indiana Department of Labor has come to an agreement with the International Alliance of Theatrical and State Employees Local 30. It's in response to the August 2011 stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair where seven people died.

The union won't accept any responsibility for the collapse and won't pay a fine. Labor Department officials first said workers were part of the union and not the fair commission but later backed off.

Union members in the future must go through more detailed training.
