USW vs Vale Update

The Local United Steelworkers Union in Sudbury, Ontario, finally reached an agreement with Vale.

This morning we spoke with USW President of the Local 9508, Darren Cove.

He says the agreement in Sudbury happened last evening.

Cove says since then, they have sent a request date to Vale to go back to the bargaining table.

But Vale turned down the request.

A request has been sent to the Conciliation Officer to determine a date that both groups agree upon.

Cove says their Local 9508 will look over the Sudbury agreement once it is made public.

But they will not demand the same deal because of the different working and living conditions found here in Voisey’s Bay.
