As of Sunday, August 1, the strike between the United Steelworkers Local 9508 and Vale reached the one year mark.
Darren Cove is the President of Local 9508.
He says there has been no progress and they’re still sticking to their guns.

He says despite the situation, they are getting stronger as the days go on.
And will hold out till the very end if need be.
