Negotiations have now reached day five with the assistance of a mediator.
The United Steelworkers and Vale headed back to the table on Sunday, September 19.
This is some promising news for the strikers who have been off the job for nearly14 months.
Bill Wells is the mediator assisting in the negotiations.
He was appointed by the provincial government in hope of bringing the lengthy strike to an end.
Details from the negotiations are not being made public with a media blackout still in effect.
We spoke with a source at around 12:30pm who told us that talks between the two parties are ongoing.
